    Fans of Kipton Cronkite's KiptonART know that anytime he hosts an event, it is not one to miss. There's something about being young, fun and well connected in New York - but it's even better when you can be young, fun, well connected AND well rounded. Last night The Young Associates (YA) of the Chelsea Art Museum partnered with Young Orpheus and KiptonART to present a special intimate performance by the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.

    The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra is a unique entity in New York’s musical landscape. Since its inception in 1972, this Grammy Award-winning group has worked without a conductor as a completely self-governing body. The event was held at the hip and modern Chelsea Art Museum, and there was a great mix of art collectors, curators, actors, models, designers and socials.

    Guest of a Guest connected with the fashionably striking Caroline Rowley (BEST outfit in the room), Writer/Socialite Emily Brill, designer Anait Bian, Banker/Art-eur Kipton Cronkite, Maximum Films story editor Clay Floren, Events powerbroker Nick Dietz, fun/sexy ‘Ruffians’ Brian Wolk and Claude Morais, scenester Kelley Hoffman, Design Bad Ass Izzy Gold, actress Summer Raj, KiptonARTs Brian Poillon, and Alan Pepe, Beauty Industry Scion Douglas Marshall, Chelsea Art Museum Board Member Shannon Gulliver, WWD’s Michelle Edgar, and Lawyer turned Artboy Joe Sheftel.
