New Yorkers brought out their inner-child at last night’s Public Art Fund spring benefit. Guests got the chance play and interact with a series of artists’ projects that brought the imagination and innovation of an outdoor exhibition into the Metropolitan West, where the event was held. Guests also enjoyed cocktails, dinner and a silent auction before DJs Jason Kraus and David Katz brought on the after-party.

The event was co-chaired by Erin and Matthew D. Bass, Sara Fitzmaurice, Patricia E. Harris, Mark D. Lebow, Jill and Peter Kraus, Linda Lennon, Stuart Baskin, Elizabeth and Richard Pepperman, Ugo Rondinone, Cynthia Rowley, Bill Powers, Patty and Howard Silverstein.

Guests included: Todd Eberle, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Susan Freedman, Martin Kersels, John Giorno, Rashid Johnson, Christopher Canizares, Laura de Gunzburg, Paul Kasmin, Kara Finnerty, Jackie Wachter, Josephine Nash, Bridget Finn, Jason Kraus, Ellen Rosengard, Nancy Alderman, Sascha Bauer and Ludovica Barbieri.
