Sotheby’s celebrated the Studio Museum in Harlem with a dinner and exhibition preview last night in New York. The evening was in support of “Creating Space: Artists for The Studio Museum in Harlem,” the upcoming auction on May 16 and 17 at the auction house, benefiting the museum’s new building on 125thStreet.

Also marking the museum’s 50thanniversary, the dinner was preceded by a cocktail reception and private viewing of sale highlights in Sotheby’s York Avenue Galleries hosted by Sotheby’s Global Head of Business Development Valentino D.
