Lots of colorful characters filled the room

Saturday, the Sonesta hotel filled their already "artciting" lobby with the works of New York Artist Philip Burke whose works have been in the pages and on the covers of Vanity Fair, Time Magazine, the New Yorker and many more.  The lobby itself looked like a page out of a magazine, with the silver-sparkly Christmas tree right in the center.

Sonesta catered their FAM Night with great hors d'oeuvres with delicious treats from their award-winning Panorama Restaurant. Chef Cramer did a great job as part of Sonesta's effort to support the arts in the Grove on FAM Night and every day throughout the year.  Their permanent art collection features works by Frank Stella, Robert Rauschenberg, Melissa Meyers and many others.  

Lots of famous faces filled the room.
