Vicente Wolf & The Joyce Theater Foundation
Designer Vicente Wolf is working pro bono with the Joyce Theater to redesign the lobby spaces in DANY Studios, and two floors of rehearsal space (9 studios) that are operated by the Joyce Theater. While significant refurbishments were conducted prior to opening the space, The Joyce is now focused on establishing a more appealing and positive environment for dancers and dance companies. Both Wolf and the Joyce hope that by revitalizing the common spaces at DANY Studios, they will foster creativity and productivity both inside and outside of the spaces.
In addition to the initial plan for the redesign of the space created by Wolf and Erick Paeper—a recent MFA graduate of the New York School of Interior Design—MSK Illumination and Tech Lighing provided significant discounts for the electrical materials and MSK Illumination and Vicente Wolf donated the balance of the costs. PPG Pittsburgh Paint pledged to donate the required paint and Crate & Barrel donated select furnishings. Wolf's redesign incorporates dramatically improved lighting and a color scheme of blacks, grays and whites, with vibrant pear green highlights.
On Thursday, May 31, Vicente Wolf held a luncheon at his NYC Loft to promote the partnership with the Joyce Theater. The Joyce Theater's Linda Shelton was among the invitees, which included Wolf's Westchester clients. The menu encompasssed a succulent chicken breast garnished with tomatoes and capers and a side of authentic couscous, roasted asparagus and a fresh garden salad.
