Monday night Fashion, art, and tech innovators joined Ruinart Champagne, to honor at the burgeoning Canal Street Arts District, developed by Wallplay and NEW INC.. The collaboration has spearheaded the transformation of 22 vacant retail spaces into an arts district for emerging creatives. .
Attendees included artist Zoe Buckman, landscape designer Lily Kwong, model Cipriana Quann, photographer Terry Gates, musician TK Quann, designer Timo Weiland, curator Nicola Vassell, artist Shantell Martin, NEW INC founder Karen Wong and artist Alexandra Bell, among many others. As they enjoyed Ruinart’s beloved Blanc de Blancs and Rosé Champagnes, as well as the newly released Dom Ruinart 2007, they explored the current exhibits across the arts district, many of which are on display until November 1.
This was the third dinner in a series between Ruinart and the New Museum that will culminate in January with a final fête in which a NEW INC member will be surprised with a scholarship by Ruinart to help them pursue their passion project.
