A Night of Parties For Charity and Art!!

The first stop of the evening was to the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House Benefit cocktail reception held on the 4th floor of the Tiffany & Co. Store on Fifth Avenue in NYC! It was a glamorous black-tie gathering before the formal dinner at the 21 Club.

After that, we were off to the Whitney Studio Party at the Whitney museum!! It was a very lively evening as their parties always are!!

The dresses were a great mix of long and short, but all put together with a quirky artsy twist. The setting was so great, and they transformed the usually dismal pit into a fun club-like atmosphere, by putting tents up over the outside openings, and covering the outside floor with black carpeting. There were even palm trees and a disco ball!

A fun interactive artwork was set up in the "outdoor" area, and everyone had fun getting the screen to react in colorful bursts to their movements.

Art Openings & Belgian Beer - A Pre-Halloween Extravaganza

The second event at the Whitney in the same week was the opening for "Modern Life: Edward Hopper And His Time". It would have been better to see more Hopper works, and less of the rest. Also, the show could have used more descriptive text panels for all of the works shown.

This guy had the coolest sneakers! Of course I had to accost him in the reception portion of the evening taking place downstairs in the pit. He said he is one of the artists with a video piece on display upstairs in the second floor galleries.
