Bagels & Art for All at Bard’s Hessel Museum

Rural Intelligence Parties and Openings It was an art opening crossed with a kiddush luncheon—the kind of glamorously academic event that often happens at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY.  The collectors responsible for At Home/Not at Home: Works from the Collection of Martin and Rebecca Eisenberg hosted the afternoon brunch featuring mimosas, endless platters of excellent smoked salmon, and big baskets of bagels that had been delivered by courier from New York City, which were eaten in the forecourt of the Hessel Museum. The exhibition is an awesome survey of the contemporary art scene—a Hudson Valley version of the Whitney Biennial.
