Inside Aperture’s Annual Patron Cocktail Party
At Aperture’s Annual Patron Cocktail Party, held on May 24, 2017, Patrons, friends, and artists celebrated Aperture’s wonderful community while listening to the music of photographer Larry Fink. The evening’s hosts were Aperture trustee Elizabeth Kahane and her husband, Bill.
Guests toured the Kahanes’ private collection, including a recent commissioned portrait by Doug Starn and Mike Starn, generously donated to the 2016 Aperture Benefit Auction.
At sunset, Larry Fink and friends played a fabulous jazz set on the Kahanes’ rooftop with its panoramic views of Central Park. Over champagne and hors d’oeuvres, guests mingled with Aperture editors, trustees, and artists, including Elliott Erwitt, Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao, and Doug Starn and Mike Starn.
Aperture Patron Members gain insider access to publications, exhibitions, artists, and programs while supporting the foundation’s mission to connect the photo community and its audiences with the most inspiring work, the sharpest ideas, and with each other—in print, in person, and online.
