Featured in Time Out New York and The Huffington Post, Urbania, Borbay’s debut one-night-only art exhibition was a smashing success. Hosted at M&T Bank’s Flatiron location and produced by Justin Brock Schantz (above with Borbay) of Left Brain Power, over 350 beautiful people enjoyed the architectural impressionist work, while sipping delicious Montecristo Rum and St-Germain cocktails. Within 24-hours, half of the pieces were sold, with contracts pending on several others.
After the jump, bold-faced-names and photographs from this illustrious red-rope affair.
