With all apologies to Madonna, it’s music and art that make the people come together. These two were not in short supply at the Bass’ annual fundraiser, A Night at the Museum, which brought together more than 500 of the city’s art patrons, philanthropists and visual art aficionados in one spot. The celebration had all its bases well covered. There were the hosts, which included Bass Board President and Director George Lindemann, Executive Director Silvia Karman Cubiñá and chairwoman Christina Getty-Maercks. There were the guests, among them art collectors Cricket and Martin Taplin, Gallery Diet Director Nina Johnson, Bass architect Chad Oppenheim, designer Laura Buccellati and Dr. Leonard Tachmes. There was music from DJs ESS and EMM. And there was art, of course: the exhibition An Invitation to LOOK featured more than 45 works from the museum’s permanent collection, dating back to 1963, when the Bass opened its doors, through today. Guests enjoyed cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, desserts and Cuban coffee as they took in the exhibit.
