Over the years, the New York Academy of Art's annual Tribeca Ball has become a celebration of its young emerging art students. And a fabulous place to creep on the art interests of the academy's famous patrons. After all, how else would we get a glimpse into the collection of Liev Schreiber or the walls of Brooke Shields?

Prior to this year's festivities on April 8th, a preview sale of the student works has been created with Paddle8, allowing those who may not be attending the event the chance to stick it to Julianne Moore and grab that perfect piece of artwork before she has the chance to put in her bid.
