What: Art Crowd party.

Where: Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

The 411: 150 guests got the VIP experience during a party for MFAH members in their 20s and 30s, who indulged in light bites, music and most importantly, the latest installation, Soto: The Houston Penetrable.

Created by the late Venezuelan artist Jesus Rafael Soto, the installation sets itself apart from other art works by being an interactive piece. It’s a noteworthy feeling, wading through a sea of more than 24,000 silver and yellow PVC tubes dangling from the ceiling.

Partygoers sipped on specialty drinks as they not only enjoyed the music of DJ Flash Gordon Parks but art on a whole new level.

Who: Among those spotted in the artsy crowd were Edward Krueger, Sydney Friedman, Ben Baron, Jessica Roberts, Merissa Little, Iliana Rodrigez, Joseph Grahan, Moses Martinez, Sara Brown, Sasha Ayad, Andreana Binder, Ana Torres and Laura Isensee.
