Black Tie International:
American Federation of Arts 2015 Spring Luncheon

New York, New York  ­̶̶ The American Federation of Arts (AFA) presents the 2015 AFA Spring Luncheon featuring a conversation between famed contemporary artist Will Cotton and journalist and editor Alina Cho, to be held at a private club on the Upper East Side on Tuesday, June 2, 2015, at noon.

The annual AFA Spring Luncheon has become one of the AFA’s most anticipated events of the season, bringing together passionate art enthusiasts, prominent museum directors, and business professionals whose longstanding commitment to the arts are vital to the mission of the AFA. Proceeds from the event go in direct support of the AFA’s exhibitions and educational programs.

Will Cotton is internationally recognized for his utopian landscape paintings, drawings, and prints composed of sugary desserts, often inhabited by figures. Cotton's work has explored gluttony, beauty, and unquenchable desire. He is represented by Mary Boone Gallery in New York, and is included in numerous museum and private collections. Cotton served as the artistic director of the California Gurls music video for pop singer Katy Perry and was commissioned by the Guggenheim Museum in 2012 to create the set for their annual performance of Peter and the Wolf.

Alina Cho is an award-winning journalist recognized for her reporting from inside North Korea, her coverage of the historic first election of President Barack Obama, and her participation with the CNN team that covered the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Cho is the host of a lecture series at the Metropolitan Museum of Art called “The Atelier with Alina Cho.” She is currently Editor at Large at Ballantine Bantam Dell, a division of Penguin Random House, and the former host of CNN’s “Fashion: Backstage Pass.”
