On Monday, April 4, New Museum’s Spring Gala, sponsored by DKNY, hosted 551 guests of the art, fashion, and design worlds. The gala honored the artists John Giorno & Ugo Rondinone, and New Museum trustee, Toby Devan Lewis. The event’s theme was “rainbow festive,” inspired by Rondinone’s Hell, Yes! sign that donned the museum’s face when it opened in 2007. Notable guests included Jeff Koons, Juliana Huxtable, Maja Hoffman, and the musical event of the night, DJ Stretch Armstrong. The gala raised 2$ million dollars to support the almost 40 year-old nonprofit institution and its international program.
