On February 25, 2012, nearly 1,700 visitors were on hand for the opening of Crafting Modernism: Midcentury American Art and Design. Among the highlights: music by the Metropolitan Stompers, Zach and Lacey Lee, and the Ben Thomas Jazz Duo; screening of Rebel Without a Cause, and even a swanky “Frank Sinatra room” (aka cocktail lounge). Above, from left: Guests lining up to see the show, mingling in the Pavilion, and even striking a pose that would do Maxfield Parrish proud.
