Opus Affair and Eastern Standard are throwing a fine arts cocktail celebration like Boston has never seen, transforming the entirety of Eastern Standard into a 1920s Gatsby-style garden party with games, food, cocktails, and live music.
Celebrating and supporting the community
We want to recognize arts organizations reaching out to young professionals and raise funds to support their work. Specifically, we’re naming the following organizations as Big Party honorees, for the programs they have created to benefit young professionals:
- Young Partners of the Boston Ballet
- Museum Council from the Museum of Fine Arts
- H2 from the Handel and Haydn Society
- 35 Below from the Huntington Theatre Company
- Young Patrons from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
Think we’ve missed an arts organization doing outstanding outreach to young professionals?
Nominate that organization when you purchase your Big Party ticket. Any organization receiving at least 20 nominations will be added to our honoree list and receive a share of the party proceeds. We love giving to the Boston arts community—and we especially love letting our party guests decide how we do it.
If you’ve never heard of our group before, here’s the story: Opus Affair is a mix of artists* and friends in our 20s and 30s who get together each month for cocktails and to chat about the arts scene…or whatever else comes to mind. Some people come for serious networking, others come for fun. There’s no formal program at our monthly events—just a chance to have a few drinks with other young professionals** interested in the fine arts. You are welcome to join whether you are a professional artist, serious amateur, or complete newbie.
