WHAT The annual Museum Dance—one of New York City’s most popular junior events—will draw more than 700 young New Yorkers in their 20s and 30s. The event begins with an intimate dinner for 200 in the Powerhouse, followed by dessert and dancing for all in the Cullman Hall of the Universe. Music provided by DJ Harley Viera-Newton. Throughout the evening, there will be a silent auction with luxury items from many of New York’s most exclusive retailers. Auction items include a corrugated cardboard aeronautical sculpture by Alex Uribe, tickets to a Stella McCartney Fashion Show in Paris in October 2009 and an outfit by the designer; a Judith Ripka 18K yellow-gold lola ring and tickets to Fashion Week; and Judith Ripka’s exclusive jewelry bar featuring designs from both the 18k Couture Collection and the Sterling Silver and 18k Gold Collection. Proceeds from this event support the Museum’s scientific and educational programming. The chairs will be dressed by Stella McCartney.
