The Modern Gala: Espionage

Saturday, June 24, 2017, 8 p.m.



We are expecting you. By order of The War Office, you are instructed to save the date for The Modernists annual summer soiree on a dazzling downtown Kansas City rooftop space for rousing music, fortifying cocktails, secret areas, dancing and dares, and a diplomatic dash of old espionage spirit on Saturday, June 24 at 8 p.m. until the party self-destructs.

Coinciding with the 100th anniversary of heavy espionage during WWI and over 50 years of James Bond, The Modern Gala: Espionage will be packed to the rafters with paranoia, secret agents, honeypots, traitors, hackers, and all that spy ring glamour spanning the last century.
