On May 19, the Museum of Arts and Design invited guests to join them in the year 1928. Held at the decadent James Burden Mansion on the Upper East Side, it was an evening that evoked all the glamour and frenzy of the months preceding the “Black Tuesday” stock market crash.

Guests including Lake Bell and Scott Campbell, Alexander Gilkes, and Stacy Engman were decked out in their flapper finest. The museum presented the evening’s honored artists, McDermott & McGough, with an award that reads: “I’ve seen the future and I’m not going.” And judging by the beauty and indulgence of this soiree, that’s something we can all agree on.
