Guests including Batman's Aaron Eckart, Antonia Thompson with big sis Victoria, and Nina Freundenberger enjoyed dim sum and cocktails in the garden. Peter Davis showed up when the party was in full swing, and quipped “I thought this was going to be a staid uptown art party but it’s a DISCO!” The guests danced to DJ Lilia de Gregory’s chic beats, with several still mingling in the upstairs galleries checking out the exhibit when the doors were finally closed.
