THE ANNUAL BENEFIT GALA + THE BAUHAUS BALL
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2019 | 5PM-12AM | 25 WINSLOW STREET

Please note that, unlike in other years, this year’s Gala is not on Columbus Day Weekend.
Two-thousand and nineteen is the 100th year anniversary of the Bauhaus, a German art school founded in 1919 that posited the idea to “reimagine the material world to reflect the unity of all the arts.” In Bauhaus ideology, functionality dictates form, meaning that the usage of the object is its primary design principle. Celebrating the centennial of the Bauhaus is especially poignant with the 2019 PAAM Party honorees, who use design principles like the ones invented by the Bauhaus every day.
THE 2019 HONOREES
Breon Dunigan is a sculptor living and working in Truro, Massachusetts. Dunigan studied at The North Carolina School of the Arts, Atlanta College of Art, The Massachusetts College of Art and holds an MFA from The Mason Gross School of Arts at Rutgers University. In her words, “Much of my recent work as focused on my perception and interpretation of our attachment to objects of all kinds. The sculptures are created using items I have collected both conceptually and literally, as well as items that have been handed down through generations of my family.” Integrating her familial items into her work bodes well for her collectors; Dunigan hails from a family that boasts four generations of beloved Provincetown artists, giving her deep-rooted connections to the Art Colony in Provincetown.

Whether it’s creating distinguished homes, collaborating with one of fashion’s greatest, or hosting a private Stevie Nicks concert for 400 costumed Halloween dinner guests, Fulk imbues every project with effortless elegance. Fulk leads a team of architects, designers, branding and event specialists in both San Francisco and New York, and his dedication to his work is seen in his commitment to Provincetown businesses, non-profits, and artists.
