ProjectArt, an award-winning organization providing arts education to NYC youth, hosted its 3rd annual gala at the Dolce Vita showroom. The party featured CNN anchor Rosa Flores as master of ceremonies, as well as a live auction hosted by C.K. Swett. The event also boasted caricature painting by students, interactive art installations, a wine tasting by City Winery, and food and dessert by two Brooklyn Flea/Smorgasburg favorites, Landhaus and Butter & Scotch.

The Dolce Vita offices inside SoHo’s Puck Building were a fitting home for the event, as ProjectArt students had previously worked with renowned contemporary artist Kiki Valdes to redesign the entrance to the workplace.
