Chuck Close’s Game Is Just Terrific

106146929 Chuck Close’s Game Is Just TerrificGatecrasher today has an item about Chuck Close at Tuesday’s Whitney gala and, boy, is it fun. The 70-year-old, wheelchair-bound artist crashed the more casual party downstairs, complete with dance floor, and was apparently mobbed by women.

“It was so boring upstairs, I couldn’t wait to get down here with you kids,” he told the paper, eventually rolling out onto the dance floor with a cluster of women.

One girl cooed that Mr. Close is “the most famous living artist in America.” Jeff Koons, also in attendance, clearly needs to step up his game.
