On October 11, 2005, the Design Trust held its annual benefit at the stunning Tribeca studio of Rafael Viñoly Architects. The cocktail event recognizes, celebrates, and raises funds for the Design Trust for Public Space.

The evening included an auction of artwork and objects by a diverse group of artists, including Louise Bourgeois, Alex Katz, Isaac Mizrahi, Tom Otterness, Ed Ruscha, Joel Shapiro, and Kiki Smith. Kitty Hawks, event chair, along with the Design Trust board of directors, chaired by Andrea Woodner, were on hand to encourage lively bidding from the crowd of over 500.
The Design Trust thanks all those who supported the event and who attended and purchased art. Special thanks to our event sponsors, Zack McKown and Calvin Tsao, principals of the architecture firm Tsao & McKown.
