“Co-chairing the Whitney’s Art Party is an opportunity to celebrate the art, culture and creativity that epitomizes New York,” Kloss said, of her hosting duties. “My dear friend Brandon Maxwell and the Whitney, along with my other fellow co-chairs, do so much to celebrate the past and future generations of creatives in fashion and art, and working with them for this wonderful event to support art education is a true honor.”
Kloss joins previously announced co-chairs Brandon Maxwell, Common, stylist Micaela Erlanger, and Vanity Fair’s Michael Carl. The annual art party will take place on Nov. 15 and will celebrate Dreamlands artists Dora Budor, Ian Cheng, Ben Coonley, Alex Da Corte, Aidan Koch, Jayson Musson and Artie Vierkant. Virginia Overton’s solo exhibition Winter Garden, on the fifth floor outdoor gallery, is also on display. The Dreamlands exhibit, which opened on Oct. 28, will run through Feb. 5.
Earlier this year at the museum’s studio party, Whitney committee member Erlanger hinted at a fall surprise in the works. “We have a lot of fun things coming up in the fall,” said the stylist, who dresses the likes of Lupita Nyong’o.
Also at the studio party, back in May, soon-to-be host Maxwell said “I’m a huge Whitney fan. I wouldn’t have missed it — I mean, there’s drinking at a museum.”
