Guild Hall To Honor Trustee Ken Wyse At Summer Gala

Guild Hall in East Hampton will honor Trustee Ken Wyse for his outstanding leadership and enduring commitment to Guild Hall at the 2023 Summer Gala on Friday, August 4. The event will begin at 5 PM at Guild Hall with a special preview of “Celestial Garden,” an immersive installation by artist Leo Villareal, known for his light sculptures, use of LED technology, and computer-driven imagery.

The evening will be emceed by theatrical innovator, fashion model, and style influencer Jordan Roth, a recent inductee into Guild Hall’s Academy of Art. Guild Hall exhibiting artists Renée Cox and Leo Villareal will also attend.

Guests will kick off the evening in the newly renovated galleries as the first to see Leo Villareal’s installation, as well as the remarkable survey “Renée Cox: A Proof of Being,” and then take a short stroll to Mulford Farm at 6 PM for a cocktail hour followed by dinner at 7 PM, a performance by the 2023 Guild Hall and Bel Canto Boot Camp resident artists, and dancing by DJ Mick to close out the festive evening. Catering will feature artful creations by Laurence Craig and Anthony Taccetta Event Design returns to execute the event concept and décor.

The Summer Gala is Guild Hall’s largest annual fundraiser and garners essential funds for the institution’s year-round programming.

Ken Wyse has been Guild Hall Trustee since 2014 and currently serves as the second Vice Chair of the Executive Committee, as well as the chair of the Development and Events Committees. Wyse is the President of Wyse Consulting, a firm he established after retiring from PVH Corporation.
