Guests learned that the show will return to theMART in the fall with a greater emphasis on furnishings and 20th century dealers. It was also revealed that Branca will headline a buzzy opening-night preview party on Oct. 6, and Bronson van Wyck will be the featured guest at the Young Collectors Night on Oct. 7—both to benefit programs funded by The Woman’s Board.
