Whitney Gala

The Whitney Museum of American Art's 2011 Gala, honoring legendary art writer Calvin Tomkins for his lifetime achievements, was held at Hudson River Park at Pier 57, on October 5, 2011.

The 2011 Whitney Gala was the first to be held outside of the Whitney Museum, and was also the first Whitney Fall Gala to take place in downtown Manhattan, continuing Whitney's celebration of their new downtown building in the Meatpacking District which is currently entering the construction phase.

Raising more than $2.65 million last year, the Gala is the most amazing and prominent of the museum's fundraising efforts, they provide the essential funds neto support the latest achievements of emerging artists.
