Ai Weiwei & the art world elite celebrate the Hirshhorn museum: PHOTOS
A whopping 320 guests turned up last week to celebrate The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden’s annual gala at 1 World Trade Center. The Hirshhorn had a record-setting year for fundraising in 2016, raising a total of $7.1 million.
After a cocktail reception, guests enjoyed a dozen Mariachi performers who were led by the Icelandic performance artist Ragnar Kjartansson. Later, everyone gathered for a seated dinner, when they watched a video in which prominent artists answered the question,“What does it mean to make art today?”
