Bomb Magazine hosted an uber stylish party at the historical National Arts Club. The walls were filled with art for the art auction and the floor was filled with artists, art lovers and walking pieces of art; Bomb lovers are a very stylish group.

Cecily Brown and Nicolai Ourossoff

The guests were treated to hors d'oeuvres prepared by the excellent kitchen at the National Arts Club (one of the best in town). After milling around and admiring the art on the walls (on sale by silent auction), there were speeches from Rob Pruitt (who toasted Cecily Brown and Nicolai Ourossoff), Brice Marden (who toasted Gabriel Orozco) and Matthew Barney (who toasted Nancy Spector). All who spoke said how much they appreciated Bomb Magazine's contributions to the art art world. The evening's honoree's were Cecily Brown, Nicolai Ouroussoff, Gabriel Orozco and Nancy Spector. The Co-Chairs for the evening were: Cary Brown-Epstein, Larry Gagosian, Marian Goodman Gallery and Jennifer Blei Stockman.
