On Nov. 7, the Art Students League of New York hosted its annual gala at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The event celebrates the League’s ongoing legacy, artists, alumni, and patrons to raise critical funds and support the organization’s mission to make fine art education accessible to all. The evening began with a cocktail hour in MoMA’s atrium, where guests were enveloped in a graphic installation by League alumna Barbara Kruger, before being seated for dinner at a ceremony where Tschabalala Self spoke about honoree Faith Ringgold and Denise Green welcomed honoree Susan Donoghue, commissioner of the New York Department of Parks and Recreation. It concluded with a riveting piano number by Grammy-winning classical musician Simone Dinnerstein in honor of her uncle, Harvey, who passed away this year. Notable attendees include Willie Cole, Jeffrey Meris, Beth Rudin DeWoody, Chakaia Booker, Sharon Sprung, Ronnie Landfield, James Little, and more. Photos by Michael Ostuni/PMC.
