Now in its fourth year, the TEFAF New York Fall art fair is in the position where tradition serves an important role and the opening night fundraising gala (which actually pre-dates TEFAF New York) has become a signature of the annual show.
“The Opening Night of TEFAF New York Fall,” will be held October 31 (Thursday), from 5 – 8 p.m. at the Park Avenue Armory. It provides the first chance to view and purchase the objects of the 90 exhibitors, including 16 new participants, at the fair while providing support for the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The annual VIP preview is hosted by The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering. It attracts New York’s most notable collectors, philanthropists, fashion and design leaders, and celebrities. It is the largest fundraiser for the organization and the money raised provides assistance for a range of enhancements to MSK’s patient care and research programs.
