For the dinner portion of the Whitney Museum of American Art's fall gala--with its theme taken from Alexander Calder's “Calder's Circus” sculptures (part of the museum's permanent collection)--David Beahm Designs used lots of Calder references, transforming the third floor gallery into a striking vision in red, with blue and yellow accents. Pieces of red fabric hung on the walls and ceiling, and each table had a centerpiece of either red or yellow dianthus surrounded by decorative custom-made drinking glasses printed with Calder drawings, all placed on tablecloths made of fabric that was made for the event based on a red, blue and yellow Calder print. Bentley Meeker bathed the room in dramatic red light, and shone gobos of Calder line drawings on the walls.
