As one might imagine, the Brooklyn Museum’s Artists Ball had no shortage of artists (or art) present. From artist-designed dinner tables by stars like Olek, Orly Genger, and Nina Katchadourian to walls festooned with candy, the museum went all out for their annual fundraising gala. Two incredible exhibits, “Ai Weiwei: According to What?” and “Swoon: Submerged Motherlands” were available for viewing throughout the evening. The party continued well into the night with a dance party featuring a performance by rapper Le1f.
The crowd was refreshingly diverse, with ensembles ranging from gowns to jeans and everything in between. The First Lady of New York, Chirlane McCray stopped by, as did Senator Charles Schumer, but unfortunately they didn’t stick around for the after party. Other famous faces included Padma Lakshmi, Judy Chicago, and Millie Brown (who you may recognize as Lady Gaga’s vomit artist).
