Enter a scene where light and sound transform the Gibbes Museum and Lenhardt Garden into a black and white odyssey. New York-based audiovisual artists Myth of an Atom will perform with DJ Fallen Atom at Society 1858's annual Winter Party. Indulge in late-night snacks from Hamby Catering & Events, specialty cocktails, Fatty's Beer, or a glass of wine. Inspired by the black and white photographs on view in Magic in the Mundane, guests will have the chance to win original photographs by some of Charleston's hottest visual artists.

Tickets are $85 for Society 1858 members and $110 for non-members. Non-members may also choose to purchase a combo ticket for $160, which includes both the event ticket and membership to Society 1858 ($170 value).
