Hanging with the Fergusons and Bill Murray at the Gibbes 

High society

Friday night, the Gibbes hosted the launch party for Society 1858, an organization of professionals that will host social and educational opportunities for up-and-coming arts patrons. Before the party, a small group of members were treated to a private tour of the Gibbes’ latest exhibit, Modern Masters. Best of all, the intimate tour was led by Esther and James Ferguson, the proud owners of the collection. James quickly turned the reigns over to his lovely wife, who charmed the crowd with stories about tense bidding wars, meeting Christo and Jean-Claude, and the one piece in their collection that they both hate. After checking out all of the art by the likes of Picasso, de Kooning, and Rodin, we moseyed down to the courtyard, where a jazz quintet was playing and a beautiful sushi table (courtesy of Caviar & Bananas) awaited. Bartenders kept guests well lubricated as they schmoozed and air-kissed in the fading light. And while the Fergusons dipped out early, they were replaced by another exciting guest: Bill Murray. (We hear he went upstairs for a private tour later on.)
