From the set of The Face to Woodridge, Illinois, photographer Nigel Barker is hosting a local shindig this evening. To celebrate the 2014 Art Van Spring Style Catalog, which he shot, the photographer will co-host a bash at the new Art Van store [900 East Boughton Road] from 6 to 9 p.m. The night includes cocktails, bites, and—naturally—a modeling competition, which will determine the face of the store's forthcoming ad campaign.
