The New York Academy of Art is pleased to announce the Tribeca Ball will honor art collector and publishing entrepreneur Peter M. Brant on Monday, April 13th. Presented by famed French Maison Van Cleef & Arpels, the evening shines a light on the emerging artists of the Academy with proceeds supporting scholarships and public programing. The event chairs are Virginie & Nicolas Bos, Bob Colacello and Shelly & Vincent Fremont, the dinner chairs Marianne & Stellan Holm and Tony Shafrazi, and the junior chairs are Dylan Brant, Zani Gugelmann, and Vito Schnabel.
Inspired by Van Cleef & Arpels’ newest high jewelry collection, this year’s décor will bring the French fairy tale Peau d’Âne to life for an enchanting evening of art, cocktails and dinner. The Academy’s six floors will reflect a ‘Once Upon a Time’ theme where guests become the main characters. During cocktails, guests enjoy an insider’s view of one of the country’s leading art schools, interacting with more than 100 emerging artists in their studios. The magic continues in Wilkinson Hall during a dinner honoring Brant for his indelible mark on the contemporary art world. Guests will be treated to a special menu prepared by Gotham Bar & Grill’s Alfred Portale with dancing to follow.
Tribeca Ball will take place at 111 Franklin Street starting at 6pm with cocktails. Dinner begins at 8:30pm.
