The Works & Process Rotunda Projects Initiative Gala at the Guggenheim Museum raised more than $450,000 in commissioning funds for the Works & Process Rotunda Projects program. The announced initiative will expand the Guggenheim's Works & Process program’s commissioned performances into the museum’s iconic rotunda. A new residency program, Works & Process Rotunda Projects will invite performing artists to create works for this unique space. Chaired by Isaac Mizrahi, the gala kicked off with a performance by Michelle Dorrance and Daniil Simkin in the Peter B. Lewis Theater, followed by dinner in the Rotunda. The event included a special demonstration in the rotunda of interactive projections planned for the upcoming Simkin project.
The first set of projects will feature MacArthur Fellow Michelle Dorrance scheduled on February 16, 2017 and American Ballet Theatre Principal Dancer Daniil Simkin scheduled on September 5, 2017.
