On June 25, Storm King Art Center hosted its second annual early summer celebration, A Summer Night, which drew more than 900 guests to the 500-acre property in New York’s Hudson Valley. Attendees enjoyed after-hours access to the art center’s permanent collection of sculptures and also took in new works by Wangechi Mutu and Brandon Ndife. Wölffer Estate Vineyard, Hudson Whiskey, and Industrial Arts Brewing Company treated VIPs to libations throughout the special evening, which concluded with a performance by indie pop musician Vagabon. Notables in attendance included Tonje Thilesen, Yrsa Daley-Ward, Jack Howard-Potter, Juan Luna-Avin, Helen Toomer, Éva Goicochea, and Storm King’s own Nora Lawrence and John Stern.
