Inside The Whitney Art Gala’s Zodiac-Themed Bash With Questlove, Karen Elson And Martha Hunt
Last night, the Whitney Art Party brought the glitz and glamor to the Whitney Museum of American Art.
After a two-year hiatus, the party returned with DJ sets from Questlove and duo, The Muses, while an astrologer gave readings in the elevator (there was also an elevator bar, as well). Fashionable VIPs in attendance included model Ashley Graham, Bling Empire: New York star Blake Abbie, models Karen Elson and Martha Hunt, as well as nightlife icon CT Hedden, fitness entrepreneur Tracy Anderson, actress Rebecca Hall and model, Elton Ilirjani.
Also in attendance was DJ Harkness Granger and artist consultant, Marina Granger, writer Alessandra Codinha,
The museum hosted “artist activations” by Devin Kenny and Rachel Rossin, while the exhibitions were accessible for party guests, from the Edward Hopper’s New York exhibition, to The Whitney’s Collection: Selections from 1900 to 1965, and At the Dawn of a New Age: Early Twentieth-Century American Modernism, among other exhibitions.
Outside, the museum’s workers handed out florescent yellow flyers to raise awareness about the Whitney Museum Union, as they fight for higher wages.
