Last night, I had the pleasure of attending one of my favorite events of the year, the Whitney Art Party. Over 1,000 people ambled into Skylight Studios in West SoHo to support the museum's endowment and mingle with a throng of young, powerful, and charitable New Yorkers. When I arrived, I was greeted by Whitney dynamos Tracy Hook (who heads the Whitney Contemporaries' patronage) and Brianna O'Brien (Annual Fund Coordinator). I've sat on the Contemporaries' Executive Committee for the last three years, and like clockwork, the Art Party continues to surpass my expectations and attract a consistently colorful crowd. From familiar faces and friends, such as Byrdie Bell, Lydia Fenet, Olivia Palermo, Lydia Hearst-Shaw, Olivia Chantecaille, and William Morris Endeavor agent Mark Mullett, to the industrious co-chairs of the evening, Allison Aston, Adam Lippes, and Melissa Gellman-Weiss, the cream of young society turned out in style for this buoyant bash.-Kipton Cronkite
