The scene was magical at LongHouse Reserve on Saturday night. The beauty of the gardens and the outdoor sculpture was shown to full advantage at the annual benefit, a white party called White Night. White was in honor of honoree architect Richard Meier's signature minimalist style. An amazing new sculpture, Maelstrom, by artist Alice Aycock was a new installation on the grounds, and the installation Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads: Gold by dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei was previewed ahead of its official August 2 opening.
At the cocktail hour, we sipped lemongrass martinis and snacked on the hilariously small Caesar salad wraps, a food that probably burns more calories chewing it than it provides.
We made new friends, Jeff Ornstein and Andre Goy, who were looking stylin' in their Stetsons.
We loved this lady's dress, and the second's scarf, and the third's?mirrors.
All in all, a lovely white night.
