The Whitney presents Edward Steichen in the 1920s and 1930s
2013 Whitney Museum Gala honoring Ed Ruscha was sponsored by Louis Vuitton this season and featured cameos by some of biggest art stars in Gotham including Ruscha, Jeff Koons, George Condo, Aaron Young, Scott Campbell, Chuck Close, and Tom Sachs, Josephine Meckseper and Richard Phillips, and many others.
The Whitney Museum held the annual Whitney Art Party last night (sponsored by MaxMara) which raised more than $450,000 for the museum’s education initiatives.

Tuesday was a competitive event night in Gotham. MoMA, Guggenheim, and Museum of Moving Image all held respective parties but massive, Sandy delayed Whitney Museum of American Art Gala and Studio Party held its own. The two-part event raised $2.7 million in part thanks to Microsoft. Guests included after-party chair Michael Avedon, Andres Serrano, George Condo, KAWS and Julia Chiang, Adam Green, and Glenn Ligon. Nate Lowman was a very special DJ and the man wasn’t kidding around - he brought a box of vinyls.

Yayoi Kusama, Accumulation, (1963) at Whitney Museum of American Art
Yayoi Kusama. Her Whitney show is getting us mighty excited.
We found this at the Whitney Biennial.
This might be the most telling work from this year’s Whitney Biennial.
