Hans-Peter Feldmann Wins Hugo Boss Prize 2010
A hosts of luminaries from various walks of life including art and fashion packed the Solomon R. Guggenheim museum (1071 Fifth Avenue) on November 4 2010, for a special party, and watched as German artist Hans-Peter Feldmann,69, was awarded The Hugo Boss Prize 2010. Of Feldmann’s win Richard Armstrong, Director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and Museum explained “We are delighted that Hans-Peter Feldmann is the latest recipient of the award and are deeply grateful to Hugo Boss for its inspired support of this renowned accolade for contemporary art.”
In addition to the high praises and the coveted trophy, Feldmann, will receive an award of $100,000. The price money is administered by the Guggenheim Foundation.
The special VIP Party included delicious bites, cocktails, dancing, and for us great people watching. We spotted Beverly Smith chatting with Wendell Brown, a dreamy Dylan Mcdermott chatting with actress Olivia D’Abo. We also spotted Alan Cumming who we overheard gushing about his love for Hugo Boss.
Guests (us too) partied to early hours of the morning. Take a look the images we shot from the evening.
