On April 4, New York Academy of Art will hold its annual Tribeca Ball, an art party featuring five floors of open studios and the work of over 100 artists. The evening will begin with a champagne and cocktail party, with dinner and dancing to follow. Organizers expect such guests as designer Kate Spade, hotelier Andre Balazs and director Baz Luhrmann to make an appearance. Following the Academy's mission, much of the art will be devoted to the study of the human figure; as the slideshow below will show, however, adorable puppy sculptures have not been denied entry.
