Mountain Mayhem: The Now 2015

01: The Aspen Art Museum's bright blue hue for The Now 2015.

The Aspen Art Museum’s winter benefit, formerly known as Freestyle, has taken on a new identity as The Now, held at the Shigeru Ban-designed building, which was illuminated in blue for the Dec. 28 event.

The evening began with cocktails, caviar and cheese as models in Dennis Basso designs waltzed through the rooftop party. Next, dinner was served in the main gallery with brief speeches from CEO and Executive Director Heidi Zuckerman, event co-chair Kitzia Goodman and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, with the live auction featuring Sotheby’s Andrea Fiuczynski. Then it was back to the rooftop for dessert and a private concert with the Canadian pop producer-singer known as Grimes.

Guests dressed to the nines with popular fashions such as pocket squares and suits on many of the gents and black dresses and statement piece jewelry on many of the women.

The Now is presented by Dennis Basso and sponsored by MISH New York, auction house Sotheby’s, Modern Luxury’s Aspen Magazine, and JETS.COM.
