Aspen Artwork Museum refashioned its winter profit this yr, introducing a blinding occasion on the Rooftop Café over the vacations.

The Downhill Disco befell on Thursday, Dec. 29, from 6-9 p.m., drawing 300-plus friends who got here decked out in ‘70s-themed apparel from sequins to satin. All arrived to the bottom flooring of the museum to test in, with the choice to ascend to the third flooring reception through the glass elevator or open-air staircase.

Illuminated in a wash of purple and hot-pink hues, the rooftop’s transformation right into a dance membership instantly set the tone for a enjoyable, festive affair. The music was poppin’, as have been bottles of champagne to enhance the caviar bar, handed apps, and dessert station. DJ Pamela Tick performed disco faves and upbeat dance tracks, whereas Ariana “Air” Gradow carried out, dressed like a disco globe, twirling on a crescent moon-shaped swing. 

Occasion co-chairs Alexander Hankin, Suzanna Lee, and Makenzie Moon Phelan served as hosts. Half means by means of the social gathering, Hankin welcomed all with a quick speech, chatting with the tutorial and curatorial initiatives of the Aspen Artwork Museum straight benefited by the occasion.
