THE PARTY LAXART artists and patrons joined to fĂȘte the kickoff of the nonprofit’s Vision Campaign during a sold-out Jay Carlile & Co. and Guess-sponsored dinner at Mr Chow in Beverly Hills. The organization’s progressive contemporary arts programming has helped launch the careers of local, national and international artists, many of whom were in attendance. THE PLAYERS Ruth Bloom, Rebecca Bloom, Linda Janger, Lauri Firstenberg, Jennifer Hawks, Steve Tisch, Irene Neuwirth, Dashiell Manley, Alex Israel, Mary Weatherford, Jedediah Caesar, Shana Lutker, Julian Hoeber, Erik Frydenborg, Amanda Ross-Ho. THE HIGHLIGHTS Between conversations about the Vision Campaign’s upcoming citywide project, The Occasional, the group eyed glittering pieces of wearable art from a well-curated Jay Carlile & Co. display. After dessert, guests let loose with a spirited round of karaoke. One lucky attendee, art collector John Yoon, really took the cake by winning local artist Nick Aguayo’s painting.
