Business mogul, publisher, film producer and Bridgehampton Polo Club co-founder Peter Brant will be honored for his “indelible mark on the contemporary art world” at the Tribeca Ball on Monday, April 13. The event, among the most anticipated among New York’s spring galas, will benefit the prestigious New York Academy of Art, where it is also being held.
Presented by Van Cleef & Arpels, The Tribeca Ball welcomes guests into the school, allowing them to view art and interact with students in their studios, and enjoy “performances and downtown entertainment at every turn.” This year’s décor will bring the French fairy tale Peau d’Âne to life for an enchanting evening of art, cocktails and dinner. The Academy’s six floors will reflect a “Once Upon a Time” theme where guests become the main characters. Guests will dine on a menu prepared by Gotham Bar & Grill’s chef Alfred Portale and dancing will follow.
Scores of the top international collectors, art world heavies, designers and celebs—many of them Hamptonites—will be on hand to applaud Brant, including Edythe and Eli Broad, Henry Buhl, Amalia and Adam Lindeman, Seren and Michael Shvo, Pamela Cohen and Nick Korniloff, Joyce and John Varvatos, Island Weiss, Agnes Gund, Eric Fischl, Elizabeth Peyton, Cindy Sherman, Will Cotton, Julian Schnabel, Julianna Margulies, Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber.
Virginia and Nicolas Bos and Bob Colacello are the Event Chairs; Stella Holm and Tony Shafrazi are the Dinner Chairs and Dylan Brant, Zani Gugelman and Vito Schnabel are Junior Chairs.
Tribeca Ball will takes place at 111 Franklin Street beginning with cocktails at 6 p.m. Dinner follows at 8:30 p.m. Tickets for cocktails are $250, while dinner tickets are $1,200 available at tribecaball.com or by calling 212-842-5123.
