We've been keeping our eyes on The Brooklyn Museum's latest generation of artistic wunderkinds
. And when the storied institution invited us across the pond to fête their new exhibitions, we jumped on board — along with 1,000 of our closest friends.
Indeed, last night, New Yorkers of all kinds turned out to honor the museum — and raise some dough, of course — with a swanky dinner followed by an R29-sponsored after-party. DJs Andrew Andrew and Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor spun tunes for the crowd, which busted moves in the museum-lobby-turned massive dance floor.
In between cocktail sips and dance circles, guests were also treated to first-looks at the breathtaking new exhibitions and interactive games. Since we would never want you to feel left out, dear reader, we've compiled our favorite pics of the soiree for your viewing pleasure, from up-close-and-personal art shots, to total Wednesday-night mayhem. Enjoy!
