Patrons, board members, and supporters joined Aperture in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, for an exclusive tour of Vik Muniz‘s studio. Muniz is an American artist of Brazilian origin that uses unconventional materials—like chocolate sauce or spaghetti marinara—to create artful images. Muniz discussed his multiple projects with Aperture and signed copies of his book Reflex: A Vik Muniz Primer (Aperture, 2005). Following the tour, the group enjoyed lunch at a popular Brooklyn restaurant, The General Greene.

This tour was the first in a series of events exclusively organized for Aperture Patrons. Aperture Patrons support the organization with a $1,000 annual contribution and receive a number of benefits including invitations to private openings, discounts on Aperture published books and photographs, a complimentary subscription to Aperture magazine, and much more!
