Scenes From the Brooklyn Artists Ball

Last night the Brooklyn Museum held their 5th annual fundraising event, the Brooklyn Artists Ball. Since its inception, the Brooklyn Artists Ball has developed a reputation as gala season's wackiest and most colorful offering, thanks to its no-holds-barred artist-designed tables and décor --or "multi-sensory installations," as the museum calls them. The event honored Arnold Lehman, Director of the Museum, whose likeness appeared in whimsical cutouts throughout the space, as well as Basquiat, Takashi Murakami, and Kiki Smith. Murakami and Smith were in attendance, as were Cindy Sherman, Vik Muniz, Kehinde Wiley, Kenny Scharf, and Mickalene Thomas. The installations this year were by Swoon, Faile, OLEK, Dustin Yellin and Pioneerworks, Duke Riley, SITU Studio, Fernando Mastrangelo, and Jen Catron and Paul Outlaw, whose oversized food-sculpture-lifting crane in the middle of the grand ballroom, once again stole the show.
