Our picks for what to do this week in the art world.
Show: Dining by Design
It’s the last day to visit The 19th annual Dining by Design event. Held by DIFFA in an effort to support their cause, the event opened on the 19th on Pier 92 in conjunction with the Architectural Digest Home Design Show on Pier 24. The event showcases designers, manufacturers and creative individuals who bring their vision and passion to the table by way of dining installations. The show will also feature a silent auction including select items from the dining installations, as well as luxury goods, and travel experiences. Of course, all proceeds from the auction and show will go to DIFFA in their effect to fight AIDS. If you are feeling adventurous, you might even still be able to snag a ticket to their Gala event Monday night.
