Black Tie International:

Donald Tober, Barbara Tober, and Michael Aram

New York's avant-garde Museum of Arts and Design, which once was known as the American Crafts Museum and was formerly housed on West 55th Street, now anchors Columbus Circle in a unique building erected as a cultural center by the eccentric Huntington Hartford, whose philanthropic excesses eventually bankrupted that billionaire heir to the A&P grocery fortune.

Specializing in cutting-edge styles of the decorative arts, MAD hosts an annual ball celebrating futuristic concepts for wearable art and for the bold artists who conceive of wild new forms of jewelry, attire, furniture, and the other elements festooning our new ways of contemporary living. 

This year their charity benefit was held at Pier 60 in far west Chelsea, where the social vanguard gathered on November 11 for a lively Visionaries Ball to honor such pioneers of cultural exploration and invention as the interior designer Michael Aram, the digital artist Richard Dupont, the gallerist and collector Barry Friedman, and the lifestyle connoisseur Ligne Roset.

Among the luminous personalities assembled for the elegant soiree were MAD's new Director Glenn Adamson, Board Chairman Lewis Kruger, and Chairman Emerita Barbara Tober, who was joined by her husband Donald, her great friend Boo Grace, Virginia Fields, Lisa Herbert, Nanette Laitman, Robert Lee Morris, Miles Young, curator Lowery Sims, and former curator David McFadden.

Mixing with the socialites and benefactors during the silent auction cocktail hour and staying for the glamorous dinner party were such celebrated folk as Reed Krakoff, Cybele Maylone, Luke Janklow, Amy Lau, Laura Paulsen, Sylvia Gottwald, Denise Benmosche, Layla Diba, Heidi and Allan Roberts, Georgia Wright, Megan Skidmore, and Larry and Klara Silverstein.
