On Friday, October 26, The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) hosted its 3rd Annual Opening Night of TEFAF New York Fall at the Park Avenue Armory. The Opening Night offered The Society’s members and New York’s most notable collectors, philanthropists and leaders in fashion and design an exclusive preview of the fair’s sensational, museum-quality pieces before opening to the public the following day.

TEFAF New York Fall, which focuses on decorative art and jewelry from antiquity through the early 20th century, is recognized for championing the finest art dealers and experts from around the world, as well as providing the highest quality art fair experience.

“It’s so wonderful to see the worlds of art and philanthropy join together for another successful Opening Night,” said Jamee Gregory, president of The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering. “The Opening Night offers a first-hand look at some of the finest art in the world while supporting the invaluable programs and initiatives at MSK, and we are so grateful to continue this partnership.”
