Last week, our members enjoyed a private visit to the Mast Brothers Chocolate flagship store in Williamsburg. The Mast Brothers discussed their artisanal chocolate, their inspiration, and their professional evolution from food vendors at weekend markets to co-owners of a global brand.

The New Museum has always been a place to see amazing shows and learn more about artists we love.
January 2011, just before the George Condo exhibition opened.
We have been going to New Museum exhibitions for a very long time. It has always been a place to see amazing shows and learn more about artists we love. Some of our most memorable experiences were at the old location on Broadway, where we saw shows by William Kentridge, Adrian Piper, and Paul McCarthy. Those New Museum exhibitions cemented our love for contemporary art.
Studio visits are our favorite Member perk. We hear new perspectives on artists’ works and get to see works-in-progress with other young professionals, which strengthens the community of art lovers. Another amazing perk is hanging out with your fabulous Associate Director of Development, Joyce Sitterly.

Ray’s favorite: Carsten Höller
Sarah’s favorite: George Condo
We are fortunate that our careers have overlapped considerably in the past few years, which has enabled us to travel the world together. Sarah began her career as an artist and Ray began in finance law. Ray became more active in art and Sarah became more active in business, so the intersection of both was art advising. We share a deep love for building private collections, including our own. These days, Ray does much of the art advising as Sarah has taken a more active role in designing interiors for her clients. Ray is the producer and interviewer for SPOTTLESS, a documentary film about the state of the contemporary art world. We also have a number of passion projects, including ARTCASTE.com, which is an encyclopedia of artist bios and an art news site.
