An Evening of Art, Craft & Design

We love to discover a hidden gem and the American Folk Art Museum is just that to many of us. While it opened in 2001, it doesn’t seem to get the same attention as its W 53rd St neighbor, the Museum of Modern Art. But, this 30,000 square foot structure designed by Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects, LLP deserves to be in the limelight. It’s a great place to host an event or stroll through on a Saturday afternoon.

Last night, I had the honor of joining one of my favorite designers Michael Aram and craft & design expert /Rachael Ray’s Content Buddy Evette Rios for an after-hours tour to celebrate the convergence of art, craft & design and DIFFA‘s 25 years of service in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Among the large crowd, the D-C lens spotted a few of our close friends and managed to snap a shot of our gracious hosts.

The dynamic duo and our hosts for the evening: Michael Aram and Evette Rios.

Three's Company: Troy Hanson, Megan Reilly and Sheila Charton...(Uh-oh..now you know what the MMPI team does at night!)

A Fab Four: Alana Moskowitz, NYDC; Leah Blank, NYDC; Zoe Settle, Town & Country; Kristen Knisley, LaForce + Stevens

Hundreds filled the room, which made for a celebratory and festive event.
