Reed Krakoff’s on a roll! Last night at Chelsea’s Highline Stages, The Whitney Museum honored the designer and patron of the arts with their American Art Award. The award is given to those who show an outstanding commitment to American visual arts and culture and to The Whitney through supporting artists in their respective fields. Honored alongside Krakoff was Miami-based collector, Martin Z. Margulies (he recently made a $5 million donation to the museum!) and Michael Ward Stout, who is the president of The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation and the founding partner of New York law firm, Stout Thomas & Johnson. Co-chairs Susan and John Hess, Brooke and Daniel Neidich, and Kimberly and Scott Resnick hosted the event.
