Last week, Stephen STARR Events officially announced an exclusive partnership with the New-York Historical Society (N-YHS). Stephen STARR Events kicked off the announcement last Tuesday with a preview reception held in the Robert H. and Clarice Smith New York Gallery of American History at N-YHS. The event offered the first public glimpse of N-YHS’s $65 million, 3-year renovation of it’s landmark Central Park West Headquarters.
The new N-YHS partnership constitutes STARR’s first major foray into the New York catering & special events market. Stephen Starr, owner of Stephen STARR Events, explains, “For years STARR Events has established itself in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas as one of the most creative and sought after event planners. We’re thrilled to bring our special events and catering services to New York… It’s also an incredible honor to partner with the New-York Historical Society, one of the country’s most esteemed museums and libraries.”
Other notable N-YHS event spaces soon to be officially unveiled include the Patricia D. Klingstein Library and the Henry Luce III Center. Together, both spaces hold more than 60,000 museum objects including Tiffany lamps, 19th century furniture, and classic American sculptures and paintings. Museum pieces will be available for display during private events. The N-YHS galleries, event spaces, as well as a yet to be named STARR restaurant (pictured in slideshow) are slated to open November 11th, 2011.
