Szold. Kehoe Designs “painted the scene” at the Modern Wing, with centerpiece designs that echoed the style of Abstract Expressionist Mark Rothko. Guests enjoyed a cocktail reception, three-course dinner, and were treated to the opening night performance of John Logan’s Red, directed by Goodman Theatre Artistic Director Robert Falls.
