The Guggenheim's YCC Party Was Filled With Underwear-Clad Dancers & More!

by Mackenzie Johnson · March 13, 2017

On Thursday the Guggenheim hosted their annual YCC Party to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Young Collectors Council along with the acquisition of over 140 works to the museum's private collection. The evening kicked off with cocktails and a private dinner at The Wright restaurant. Guests then made their way into the iconic rotunda that was adorned with walls of brightly dyed flowers and a DJ booth placed in the center of the space. Crowd favorite DJ, Ryan McNamara, kept us on our feet sipping craft Grey Goose cocktails into the wee hours while half-naked violinists and dancers provided the perfect Instagram fodder. We're always down for a rowdy night at the museum and this was no exception.
