Revisiting The Glamorous, Glittery World Of Studio 54

Nassau County Museum of Art’s major annual fundraiser, the Museum Ball, recreated the world of Studio 54 where superstar fashion designer Halston and his celebrity friends—Liza Minnelli, Bianca Jagger and Andy Warhol, among them—established the legendary club’s razzle-dazzle melding of music, celebrity, nightlife and fashion. This theme was inspired by the museum’s spectacular Halston Style exhibition which remains on view through July 9.
Called Night at Studio 54, the Ball honored Rita and Frank Castagna, two of the most admired and philanthropic members of the Long Island business community. Their Americana Manhasset and Wheatley Plaza are the region’s most prestigious shopping destinations.

Spearheading the way to a beautiful Night at Studio 54 were the Ball Chairs: Museum President Angela Susan Anton, Americana Manhasset President Deirdre Costa Major and Museum Trustee Laura Savini. The Journal Committee, co-chaired by John Gutleber, president of Castagna Realty Company, with Rebecca Creavin and M. Patricia Janco-Tupper of Wells Fargo Bank, galvanized support for the successful Journal.
