Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
This week, we participated in an array of festivities to celebrate organizations, new items, and more. Below, we’re showing you what celebrations happened this week that we couldn’t miss.
On Wednesday, the New Museum held its 2018 Spring Gala at Cipriani on Wall Street, kicking off with cocktails, followed by a dinner and an auction (featuring works by John Giorno, Ragnar Kjartansson, and Christina Quarles) led by Simon de Pury. Honoring artists Cecily Brown, Julie Mehretu, and Elizabeth Peyton, the night was hosted by the museum’s Lisa Phillips, Toby Devan Lewis Director of the New Museum; Massimiliano Gioni, Edlis Neeson, Artistic Director; and James Keith Brown, President. Throughout the night, over 600 guests in attendance enjoyed lively company and cocktails to music by DJ Justine D.
Last night at Spring Place to celebrate The Watermill Center’s 25th Annual Summer Benefit & Auction, we attended its “Pre-Summer Party.” The night welcomed the organization’s new collaboration within the space, and the addition of “Viewpoints” (an annual lecture series curated by the Center) joining Spring Place’s roster of cultural programming.
From there, we stopped by the World of McIntosh Townhouse in SoHo, joining tattoo artist and SAVED Wines creator Scott Campbell for a first taste of his new vintages, SAVED Magic Maker Rosé and Red Blend. Campbell’s friend Chef Mario Carbone was in the kitchen, serving delicious snacks, as guests mingled over DJed music by Chances with Wolves. Between sips, guests watched a lucky few get tattooed by Campbell.
Tonight in New York, we’re heading to a celebration with CÎROC for its 2018 Summer collection, welcoming the return of the CÎROC Summer Colada, as well as the launch of CÎROC Peach and CÎROC Pineapple. Additionally, joining the CÎROC ambassadors of women (Teyana Taylor and Cassie) is Colombian singer and songwriter, Karol G.
