Kicking off this past weekend, Ikram transformed Terzo Piano on the roof of The Modern Wing into a blaring wash of color and threw one hell of an experience in the form of an after-party they called "Crash The Gala". The gala we reference was the opening Gala for the Roy Lichtenstein retrospective at The Art Institute - this summer's blockbuster exhibition.

Laden with liquor, hot dogs, gigantic bacon slices, corn dogs, popcorn balls, ice cream buffets, and grilled cheeses, the room was packed with personalities of irreverent sophistication feeding their vices. This was the grownup's playground for museum's board members and society folk, including faces like Desiree Rogers, Shane Gabier, Chris Peters, Linda Johnson and Mickey Boardman. We've pulled some politicly correct, yet still hedonistic photos for review.
