Dia:Beacon shifted its annual benefit from an evening affair to a midday event on Sunday.
Over the weekend, the Merce Cunningham Dance Company presented its final round of events at Dia:Beacon including one performance for Sunday's private gathering. Alistair Macaulay has a blow by blow of the piece in Tuesday's NY Times.
Artinfo.com ran a little society page blurb and photo gallery on the museum's private benefit, and Martha Stewart and her dogs blogged their experience of the event on their respective blogs - each complete with photos.
VanityFair.com posted a piece with photos by Todd Eberle which also mentions the Starn's party and the Olafur Eliasson opening on Saturday at Bard College.
