The Art of Zen

| September 28, 2015 | Parties

THE PARTY To get art patrons in the glamping mood—which is this year’s theme for MCASD’s Monte Carlo gala—there was only one setting so romantic, so unique, so out-of-this-world that would fit the bill for this underwriters’ dinner. Enter the award-winning Golden Door Spa Resort, where guests dined amid 100-year-old oaks under a tent bedecked with lanterns and chandeliers. It was the epitome of outdoor glamour, but one would expect nothing less from the arts powerhouse and the world-class destination spa. THE GUESTS Glamping co-chairs Melissa Garfield Bartell, Rusti Bartell and Helene Ziman; Joan and Irwin Jacobs; Valerie and Harry Cooper; Harvey and Sheryl White; Lee Clark and Jerry Pikolycky; Leo and Emma Zuckerman THE HIGHLIGHTS Each guest received a custom travel bag featuring the artwork of Monte Carlo glamping artist ambassador Matthew Mahoney, as well as a special spa gift from Golden Door. Here’s to “roughing it.” –Photography by Bauman Photography
