Richard Taittinger, Chairman of the Board of RU and RU Board members
Thomas Rom and Micheal Reynolds, Benefit party co-chairs
Simon & Nikolai Haas
Invite you to celebrate RU’s 9th anniversary and our continued commitment to our resident creative forces.
This year we hosted 75 artists and curators from 42 countries, invited 200 guest visitors, and organized 13 exhibitions and 44 public programs.
Our artist imagined holiday experience will be a celebratory occasion to meet RU residents, with performances by Illustrious Blacks and our holiday choir, a photo booth installation by artists Oneika Russell and Émilie Régnier together with our naughty Santa, a dessert intervention by Glexis Novoa and chef Jazzie Einalhori, and artist envisioned cocktails.
Performances will be amplified by the legendary sound systems of McIntosh.
The night will close with RU's signature raffle draw for a fully funded artist’s residency in Serbia in 2019.
