Opening of Artist Lies Maculan's "Dream Shop"
A demure redheaded girl sleeps upon a large bed at Austrian artist, Lies Maculan's photo installation. Her dreams displayed in forms of everyday items symbolizing all we desire: to fly, to be beautiful, to exceed expectations (a mannequins underwear is stuffed to make him "larger" then normal). Being dreams, the items remain intangible existing as photographs on realistic shelves. Hosts, fashion designer Erin Fetherston, Arden Wohl and KiptonART's Kipton Cronkite socialized with guests including Lucy Sykes, event orchestrator Susan Shin, Euan Rellie, Lady Liliana Cavendish, Craig Robinson, Countess LuAnn Lesseps, Chessy Wilson, artist Ellen von Unwerth, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Lara Meiland-Shaw and Mia Morgan in the though provoking atmosphere.
