What: The Storm King Art Center held its sixth annual fall gala and live auction, honoring The Duke of Devonshire and artist Andy Goldsworthy.

When: Thursday, October 2

Where: The Four Seasons restaurant in New York.

Who: The Duke, Andy, and the rest of the art world’s finest, including artists Lynda Benglis, Jeppe Hein, Doug and Mike Starn, and Ursula von Rydingsvard.

Why: Maybe the best way to weather last night’s hurricane-induced storm was to get dressed up and bid on art. There was even a small Joel Shapiro sculpture, rotating slowly on a platform, as if it were a tiny exotic car at an auto convention.
