COLLECTING CRUMB:  

We’re gearing up for next Thursday, June 16th where we’ll be kicking off The Society Art Series in NYC!  Members will receive an insider’s perspective on the often-elusive world of art collection and curating held at the cozy cocktail den - The Wooly (located in the bottom of The Woolworth building). 

We’ll enjoy a lively discussion moderated by Vogue Contributing Editor, Moda Operandi Co-Founder and art aficionado Lauren Santo Domingo while we sip Zacapa Rum cocktails and view a fashion meets art installation by Siwy Denim.
 
Panelists include:
 
Monica Schwerin - Associate Director at Luhring Augustine, a Chelsea-based art institution since the 1980s.
 
Philae Knight - shares her passion for emerging artists through her much lauded work staging special exhibitions curator for the highly esteemed Phillips de
Pury & Company – an auction house whose history dates back to holding sales for distinguished collectors of the day such as Marie Antoinette.

Kyle DeWoody – a young collector who has gained notoriety for her great eye and a very refreshing approach to collecting.
 
Max Wolf – an independent curator and a Modern and Contemporary specialist at Artnet, the largest place to buy, sell and research fine art online.
