On Saturday, July 29, over 1000 people attended the 24th annual Watermill Center Summer Benefit and Auction supporting the organization’s year-round artist residency and education programs. The sold-out night, dubbed “Fly Into The Sun,” was hosted by Robert Wilson and presented by Van Cleef & Arpels. Artist Laurie Anderson was honored, alongside Isabelle Huppert in tribute to the late Lou Reed.   

Guests were treated to installations and performances by Jared Madere, Somos Monstros, Jokubas Nosovas, Nikitas Broukakis, Sam Khoshbin, Kate Gilmore, Nile Harris, Stephen Shanabrook, Vesna Mackovic, Dana Davenport, Rachel Frank, Christopher Knowles, Xu Zhen, and more.
