Art Curators Gather for Night of Celebration and Charity
Last week, we put on on our best dancing shoes to hobnob with some of the art scene biggest tastemakers. We arrived at the Prince George Ballroom. At the venue, which glowed a lovely shade,we where greeted by lovely scene fit for the well heeled set. Luxury tables covered the spaced, a feast filled with a delightful selection dishes for both vegetarian and meat eaters served as the backdrop as the Independent Curators International (ICI), gathered a slew of notables at Annual Benefit and Auction. They felicitated Dasha Zhukova, who was awarded the 2012 Leo Award. The award which, created by artist ZAK KITNICK, was presented by AGNES GUND. The evening also saw the wins for JAY SANDERS and NAV HAQ. The artist won 2nd ICI INDEPENDENT VISION CURATORIAL AWARD.
The evening concluded with an auction that raised over $333,000. This year a portion of the funds raised will benefit new ADAA Relief Fund to support members who were affected by Sandy.
