ol­low­ing the fo­cus on mu­sic and the­atrics at last year’s gala din­ner for the First Ini­tia­tive Foun­da­tion (FIF), this year’s event will turn its at­ten­tion to art—specif­i­cally, French im­pres­sion­ist master Claude Monet. The din­ner on May 10 will see FIF tak­ing over the pic­turesque Hong Kong Her­itage Mu­seum. Guests will get the chance to view Le French May’s highly an­tic­i­pated ex­hi­bi­tion, Claude Monet: The Spirit of Place, which fea­tures 17 Monet paint­ings from France’s Réu­nion des Musées Na­tionaux that are be­ing shown for the first time in Hong Kong. The gala din­ner also cel­e­brates the pub­li­ca­tion of FIF’S My Monet, a fun, il­lus­trated bilin­gual book that aims to ben­e­fit younger mu­seum vis­i­tors.
