Spring Gala 2017

may 2017

This year, Creative Time honored the celebrated team behind Opening Ceremony for their annual spring fundraiser. Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, the design powerhouses behind OC and Kenzo, have continuously captured the global cultural landscape through their creations and timely collaborations.

The Gathery was tasked to collaborate with the visionary duo to create an evening that celebrated the coming together of communities and the beauty surrounding the diversity of New York’s multi-ethnic heritage. Held at the impressive new Brooklyn shopping destination, City Point, the evening also celebrated the launch of the non-profit’s latest public project Pledge of Allegiance showcasing flags designed by artists including Yoko Ono, Marilyn Minter, Vik Muniz and Alex Da Corte. Showcased during cocktail hour and in our main dining hall, the flags were supplemented with a site-specific retrospective of American sculpturor Jordan Wolfson entirely produced out of solid ice. Gathering 500 guests, the dinner was developed with the rule-bending executive chef of Mission Chinese, Angela Dimayuga, highlighting the international cuisines of 12 countries through a collaboration with League of Kitchens, an all-female culinary workshop initiative focused on celebrating the immigrants that collectively represent the DNA of New York City.
