The Bronx Museum Holds Spring Gala and Auction

Tuesday, March 3, 2015

The Bronx Museum held its annual Spring Gala and Auction on March 2 at the Conrad New York in Lower Manhattan. This year’s event celebrated 10 years of the museum’s teen council education program, which makes contemporary art and culture accessible to urban youth. The event honored Bronx natives; Arlene Alda, an author and photographer; Elliot Brownstein, a Museum Trustee; Tats Cru, a group of graffiti artists and muralists; and fashion designers Darlene and Lizzy Okpa, for their support of the museum and of Bronx youth and culture programs. The gala was co-chaired by Laura Blanco, Olivia Douglas, Marilyn Greene and Ruth Corn Roth, with artist chairs Dillon Cohen, Katie Holten and Tim Rollins and honorary chairs Robert Klein and John Patrick Shanley.

Guests gathered to show their support and to bid on covetable artwork by artists such as Elizabeth Peyton, Theater Gates and Henry Taylor.

Among the attendees were Lynda Lopez, Shelley and Donald Rubin, Holly Block, Dana Emmott, Donald Savelson, Laura Duggan, Alexandre Arrechea, Marlene Barrios, Mamie Gummer, Sara Kendall, Tony Ulloa, Frank Rodriguez, Aurelia Green, Vanessa Gibson, BG 183, Bio Feliciano, Nicer, Richie Barshay, James Paterson, Ashton Chan, Fiona Cibani and Steven Green.

All proceeds from the event enable the Bronx Museum to continue offering free public programs, free admission, internationally recognized exhibitions and arts education programs to over 12,000 Bronx youth each year.
