Friday Fête: Lexus Hosts INTERSECT Event, SCAD Turns 40, and More

For this Friday FêteWhitewall takes you through some of this week’s hottest events, including those hosted by Lexus, SCAD, Linder, and Victor Garcia.

At noon on Tuesday at the East River Plaza in New York, artist Victor Garcia debuted his mural The Many Faces and Personalities of New York City on the side of the plaza’s garage. Unveiled by The Blumenfeld Development Group, the event also welcomed students from the local Harlem Community District 4 school to join in on painting with Garcia. The first of an art series featured at the plaza, the work depicts faces and symbols that makes up New York City.

That afternoon in the Hamptons at Guild Hall, Hamptons Magazine celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). President and Founder, Paula Wallace, shared excerpts from her new book SCAD: The Architecture of a University, which led to an intimate reception in the garden.

And that night, Lexus held a preview event to celebrate the newest iteration of “INTERSECT by Lexus”—the brand’s immersive experiences that activate the five senses. Attended by special guests like Rose Huntington-Whiteley, Justin Theroux, Winnie Harlow, Danny Meyer, Timo Weiland, Peter Som, and Rami Malek, the night offered music by Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsystem, a generative dance floor (that translated movements into visualizations), public and private gallery spaces, and food and beverage options. Through hospitality, food, design, entertainment, and technology INTERSECT continues to build a strong Lexus community.

On Thursday, fashion label Linder’s co-founder and creative director, Sam Linder, revealed his photo exhibition at The National Arts Club. Showing photos taken from 2001–2008, the exhibition centers around the creator’s practice of photography—a visual art he was invested in before fashion. The exhibit is broke up into series—”Frames,” “New York for the Aimless,” “Notes,” “Screen Tests,” “Search Results,” “Titles,” and “TV Stills”—and through each category shines a light on the different subcultures, happenings, and curiosities of New York.
