If there's one museum that can consistently be counted on to throw a memorable event that attracts everyone from well-heeled socialites to young downtown influencers, it's The Whitney. This year for their Studio Art Party, they set up a half dozen male and female nude models around a huge stack of Louis Vuitton luggage, the event’s sponsor. Artists were lined around the center display sketching the models and then, later, guests were invited to sketch alongside the professionals. By the end of the night the floor was littered with hundreds of sketches of nude bodies. The event was held in honor of artist Ed Ruscha and, fittingly, his own work was also projected on large screens throughout Skylight at Moynihan Station, where the event was held.
