New York Live Arts 2014 Gala What A Night!

The 2014 New York Live Arts Gala on April 22 was an unforgettable evening of glamour and performances at the Mandarin Oriental, New York. Hosted by Honorary Chairs: Claire Danes & Hugh Dancy and Gala Co-Chairs: Colleen Keegan, Slobodan Randjelovic & Jon Stryker, 225 guests attended the event, which raised funds to support New York Live Arts' programs and services to present and cultivate cutting-edge art and idea.

The event included a fantastic performance featuring: Bill T. Jones & Claire Danes, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, Black Monks of Mississippi, Almanac, and alumni of YoungArts, a Live Arts Partner Organization that cultivates the next generation of artists.

Each year, New York Live Arts commissions an artist to design a limited-edition menu as a keepsake of the event. This year's menu was designed by Theaster Gates.
