The show was inspired by Robert De Niro’s films, including Heat, Godfather, Taxi Driver and Goodfellas, as well as his signature muse: the Monopoly Man. In addition to unveiling over 25 new pieces of art, the party also featured impromptu dance performances throughout the 4-level gallery, sounds by DJs Alexandra Richards and Alix Brown, food trucks serving fries out of Monopoly-inspired top hats, and a custom designed graffiti cake.
