Celebrities and art stars abound.

On Wednesday night, The Whitney hosted their annual American Art Awards, honoring Dorothy Lichtenstein, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and The Maramotti Family. The event centered on a chic seated dinner attended by Jeff Koons, Jane Holzer, David Zwirner, and Larry Gagosian. Whitney director Adam Weinberg regaled the audience with an anecdote about a young Roy Lichtenstein who had a table marked with his name at the legendary Meatpacking District restaurant Florent, where the artist was known to hide out.

On Thursday, we took a break from the endless Frieze Week previews to kick off our shoes with a slightly younger set at the Whitney Art Party. Several celebrities, including Emmy Rossum, Nicky Hilton, and Zoe Saldana, were in attendance.
