Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Last Saturday, the Parrish Art Museum played host to a night supporting and celebrating the essence of art. From those who made it to those who paid for it, 1,000 guests ranging from artists to philanthropists and business leaders came, including artists Jennifer Bartlett and Maya Lin. The event honored philanthropist Inga Maren Otto and award-winning author and filmmaker Katharina Otto-Bernstein, for their contributions to the museum as well as to the worlds of arts and culture.
Hosted by the museum’s director, Terrie Sultan, the annual fundraising gala took place at the Herzog & de Meuron-designed building in Water Mill, New York. This year, the gala raised an unprecedented $1.25 million.
Attendees had cocktails in the museum where the exhibitions on view included “Jennifer Bartlett: History of the Universe – Works 1970-2011,” “Platform: Maya Lin,” and the second installation of the permanent collection. The table settings for the dinner that followed reflected the grid work of Bartlett, lined with handmade narrow gridded wire boxes.
Later on, dancers from MoveOpolis! performed choreography by Richard Move, and then guests were invited to dance themselves at the afterparty in the Museum’s Lichtenstein Theater.
