A celebration of the Art Students League's 125th Anniversary in their land-marked building at 215 West 57th Street.  

Karin Bacon created an installation for the entrance hallway constructed of paper sculptures.  She also created paper costumes for three models,  and selected the lighting, plantings, and carpeting.

The guests were thrilled with the transformation, which brought a sense of fantasy, elegance to the occasion.
