Scene Last Night: Jeff Koons, Aby Rosen, Caroline Kennedy

“This color is the perfect color for art,” said Jessica Hart of her bright-red gown, with her date, Stavros Niarchos, nearby. “On any other night, I’d stand out like a sore thumb. Tonight it fits right in.”

Hart was standing in a tent on the Seagram Plaza last night for the 35th anniversary gala of Studio in a School, a nonprofit that brings working artists to teach in New York City public-school classrooms. It was founded by collector Agnes Gund during the fiscal crisis of the mid-1970s when funding for art education was cut.
