Openings & Parties: 2014 CREATIVE TIME Spring Gala Honoring Kara Walker

Last night, over 700 high-profile guests enjoyed a sneak-peek of Kara Walker’s A Subtlety, her first large-scale public project that sits inside Brooklyn’s Domino Sugar Factory. Supported by Creative Time, attendees to the gala danced to a set by the legendary DJ Afrika Bambaataa and sipped Absolut Elyx cocktails out of tin bottles inspired by the space’s industrial past. With the goal of supporting the New York-based nonprofit, over $1.3 Million dollars was raised, ensuring a continued legacy in the arts. For those wishing to see Kara Walker’s enormous homage to the sphinx, A Subtlety goes on view to the public beginning this Friday, May 10th 2014.
