Brooklyn Artists Ball 2016

Brooklyn Artists Ball 2016

The Brooklyn Museum held its sixth annual Brooklyn Artists Ball on Wednesday, April 20. The evenings honorees were Stephanie and Tim Ingrassia. Event designer David Stark transformed the Beaux Arts Court into a forest of towering white totems inspired by the sculpture of Brancusi. They rose from each table in different heights – the highest one being 21-feet. The musical performances included DJ Runna, and Brooklyn Museum Trustee and music producer, Kasseam Dean (Swizz Beatz). Notable guests include Jenna Lyons, Tom Sachs, and Anja Rubik.
