We’ve all seen more than our fair share of 432 Park Avenue‘s facade around town, but finally here comes an opportunity to get inside the building. The Storefront for Art and Architecture has just announced that the Viñoly supertall will be the site of their 2015 spring benefit, TRANS. The gala, being held Tuesday, April 21st, 2015, will be the first public event hosted at the unopened building, and by the looks of the program, it also promises to be as starchitect-studded and “transcendent” as these things get.

This year’s benefit revolves around the prefix “trans-” and honors artist Do Ho Suh and Pritzker-winning architect Thom Mayne, focusing in on aspects within the work of the pair. In addition to a good time with drinks and hors d’oeuvres, guests will also get the opportunity to bid on artwork from famed artists, designers and architects such as Iwan Baan, Bec Brittain, Sebastian Errazuriz, Steven Holl, Bjarke Ingels, Thom Mayne, Dustin Yellin and 432’s architect Rafael Viñoly.

This is what they have on tap for the evening—although access will vary depending on which ticket you purchase:

  • 6 pm: Private benefit committee auction preview
  • 7 pm: Silent art auction, cocktails, and hors d’oeuvres
  • 9 pm: special performance by Tori Wrånes

But as you might expect, entry doesn’t come cheap. What’s available:

  • GENERAL ADMISSION TICKET: $350.00
  • SPONSOR: $1,000.00. Includes admission one to the event and private auction preview, and listing on the invitation, program, and website.
  • PATRON: $2,500.00. Includes admission for three to the event and private auction preview, and listing on the invitation, program, and website.
  • STOREFRONT BENEFACTOR: $5,000.00. Includes admission for seven to the event and private auction preview, and listing on the invitation, program, and website.

  • STOREFRONT CIRCLE: $25,000.00. Includes admission for twenty to the event and private auction preview, listing on the invitation, program, and website, and verbal acknowledgment during the event.

Although a bit pricey, proceeds do go to supporting museum programming and are tax deductible. You’ll also get the fun of interpreting their dress code: “Transparent,  Translucent,  Transgressive.”
