On Jan. 30, the Whitney Museum of American Art celebrated its annual Art Party, where young patrons, emerging artists, and guests from the worlds of art, fashion, business, philanthropy, and entertainment gathered for a lively evening in support of the museum’s renowned Independent Study Program. Guests congregated in the museum’s ground floor in the Kenneth C. Griffin Hall for a botanical-themed evening of dancing, Casa Dragones cocktails and signature mocktails by Natalie Ball and Kambui Olujimi, and DJ sets by MGMT and Samantha Urbani. They also perused the museum’s galleries and were the first to see “Harold Cohen: AARON,” an exhibition about the foundational stages of AI in artmaking. Among the notables in attendance were Scott Rothkopf, Salman Toor, Alice Gao, Eny Lee Parker, Beverly Nguyen, Hannah Gottlieb-Graham, Wes Gordon, Olivia Palermo, Cynthia Rowley, Ashley Longshore, Ethan James Green, Lola Flash, and more.
