On April 3rd 2017, the New York Academy of Art’s Tribeca Ball, supported by Van Cleef & Arpels, will honor the artist Will Cotton.
This year’s décor has been inspired by the Maison’s High Jewelry collection “L’Arche de Noé racontée par Van Cleef & Arpels”. The guests will plunge into an enchanting world, with six floors of animal-themed art installations and surprise musical performances. They will enjoy an insider’s view of one of the country’s leading art schools, with tours of more than 100 artists’ studios with the artists themselves present.
Known for his surreal, candy-colored portraits, Will Cotton is a tireless supporter of its mission, teaching Master Classes and serving as a Senior Critic. Therefore, he hosts his beloved artists’ drawing party every fall as a fundraiser for the News York Academy of Art. Tribeca Ball showcases the emerging artists of the Academy, with proceeds supporting scholarships and public programming at the school.
