LAUNCH SLIDESHOW

Artsy Celebrates CalArts at Soho Beach House with Valentino

Last Thursday night, Artsy once again brought together the art world elite to celebrate in the sand at Soho Beach House in Miami Beach. The event, supported in partnership with Audi, Valentino, and Vhernier, was in honor of the new John Baldessari Studios at CalArts, a new facility that will house artists’ studios. The building will be named for the legendary artist who is a CalArts alumnus and longtime faculty member. Thomas Lawson, Dean of the CalArts School of Art, spoke about the new studio building and the forthcoming fundraising program. He was introduced by Artsy CEO Carter Cleveland, president and COO Sebastian Cwilich, and Christine Kuan, Artsy’s chief curator. Guests enjoyed a raw oyster bar (yours truly especially!), wild mushroom risotto served from an enormous parmesan hollowed-out cheese round, burrata and goat cheese canapés, mini Soho House signature sliders, and champagne as they spilled out onto the beach.

Notable attendees include Angela Westwater, Charles Rockefeller, Eric Shiner, Jill G. Kraus with Peter Kraus, Kyle DeWoody, Marianne Goebl, Nicky Hilton, Nicolo Cardi, Tony Oursler, and Stacy Keibler.
