On Thursday evening, July 15, the Young Patrons of AFTAM (American Friends of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art) hosted a "Rooftop Soirée" at Haunch of Venison contemporary art gallery in Rockefeller Center.

A sold-out crowd of more than 300 young professionals came to support
the cause and enjoy a private viewing of the gallery's current
exhibition, "Four Projects: Doug Argue, Bill Fontana, Alexandra Grant,
and Les Rogers."

AFTAM Young Patrons were particularly pleased to welcome artist David
LaChapelle, whose show, "Postmodern Pop Photography," is opening at
the Tel Aviv Museum on July 23.

committee members were Adrienne Bavar, Tara Benet, Elizabeth Burrows,

notable works of art for its collections, began the Young Patrons
