The 2019 Whit­ney Art Party is get­ting all of the de­tails in place. The cochairs for this year's fundraiser have been an­nounced, and the list in­cludes first-time party spon­sor Forty Five Ten.

The bou­tique's pres­i­dent Kris­ten Cole will be joined by fel­low cochairs Jack McCol­lough and Lazaro Her­nan­dez of Proenza Schouler, Michael Carl and Mi­caela Er­langer. The an­nual event, which takes place this year on Jan. 29, will be pre­ceded by a din­ner hosted by the Whit­ney's Artists Coun­cil and a site-spe­cific per­for­mance by down­town mu­si­cal group Onyx Col­lec­tive.

Guests — which in the past have in­cluded pre­vi­ous co­hosts Ash­ley Gra­ham, Kar­lie Kloss and Com­mon — will have an op­por­tu­nity to view the art mu­seum's cur­rent ex­hi­bi­tions dur­ing the party, such as the soon-clos­ing “Andy Warhol — From A to B and Back Again” and “Kevin Beasley: A View of a Land­scape.” Pro­ceeds from the Art Party sup­port the mu­seum's post­grad­u­ate In­de­pen­dent Study Pro­gram, which of­fers ad­vanced train­ing in stu­dio art, cu­ra­to­rial and crit­i­cal stud­ies.

In sup­port of the pro­gram, Forty Five Ten and the Whit­ney are also team­ing for a forth­com­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion with New York-based artist Caitlin Keogh. — KRIS­TEN TAUER
