Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
The Tribeca Ball, presented by Van Cleef & Arpels, to benefit the New York Academy of Art kicked off last Monday night with more than 900 guests in attendance from the media, fashion, and arts industry.
Academy President David Katz honored Eva and Michael Chow for their longtime support of the arts at the annual event, including the newly created Eva & Michael Chow Scholarship Fund, where the Chows were presented with portraits created by an Academy alumnus and artist Guno Park.
The theme for this year’s event, “To the Far Horizon,” was inspired by Van Cleef & Arpels’ jewelry collection, which featured motifs of the seven seas, enchanted coral reefs, and shimmering jellyfish forests. In addition to the glimmering jewels, the Academy mounted an exclusive one-night exhibit, “Funny Stuff,” highlighting humorous works of alumni, faculty members, and current students.
Following cocktails and a sea-themed dinner, guests danced the night away to tracks by DJs Gillian Sagansky and Leslie Kirchhoff.
The evening raised more than $850,000 to support the Academy’s scholarships and public programming.
