Party Photos: Young Friends Winter Gala A Royal Affair

The Young Friends of the Philadelphia Museum of Art held a black tie affair in honor of Treasures from Korea: Arts and Culture of the Joseon Dynasty, 1392-1910. This full-scale survey is a rare opportunity for American audiences to see some of Korea’s artistic masterpieces and runs through May 26.

The party was in full swing when I arrived, as I had been at Valley Forge casino shooting the CHOP event with Rob Base. That weekend I photographed 13 events between Thursday and Sunday, and somehow this was slipped through the cracks of being posted. Here it is.  Stephanie Searles and Jenna Pellecha

 Mike Delbene (is excited for the Mann Music Center Gala on June 25 with Diana Ross) and David Lanza

 Joseph Soler and Mandy Buhle, loved the Korea art exhibit. Was different then they expected, very dramatic and beautiful.

 Jill Betters, 2012 Sexy Single, and Philadelphia Crossteam Coalition with Phil Consuegra, Director of Development Penn Charter.
 Brian and Karen Kelley. They were thrilled to be out and about, as they just had a baby 8 months earlier, and this was their first time leaving him with a sitter.
Michael and Liz Grimaldi struck a dramatic pose as I was being ushered out the door at Midnight. Everyone was headed to the afterparty at Level 33 at the Loews Hotel, except moi as I was tired from a long day of shooting. I hit up the Broad Street Diner with Ian Crumm, who was on the Young Friends of the Art Museum committee.
