The 45th Anniversary Celebration of Painted Bride Art Center took place on Saturday May 18, 2014 here at Material Culture. Please see the below testimonials and photos from Painted Bride Art Center.

“The Painted Bride Art Center held it’s 45th Anniversary Celebration at Material Culture this past Saturday and it was a smashing success. The venue is unparalleled with art and furniture from all over the world used as the backdrop or the centerpiece for your event. It’s a visual delight and our guests were impressed as soon as they walked in the door. And, the food was outstanding! Baba Olga’s café is on site and  Chef Aliza Green prepared a Caribbean buffet that was absolutely delicious. And the table presentation was more than we could have hoped for. She even had fresh sugar cane in vases beside the buffet table. The owners and staff could not have been more accommodating. They went out of their way to make sure that our needs were met and had creative suggestions to make our event the success that it was. When we asked our guests what contributed to our success they said it was the venue (Material Culture), the food (Baba Olga’s Café) and the band (Urban Guerilla Orchestra).

I would highly recommend Material Culture and Chef Aliza Green for most any event.

Still smiling from our successful event!”

“We (Painted Bride Art Center) recently hosted a party at Material Center and 5 stars just isn’t enough to illustrate the responsiveness of the Material Culture staff, their willingness to work with us to create a once-in-a lifetime event and the food was incredible. It’s simply one of the best venues in the region. I would definitely recommend this space for your special event.”
