Once again this year Geoff was asked to create the look and decor of the benefit for Thomas Cole National Historic Site. Referencing a famous Thomas Cole Painting hanging now in the Brooklyn Museum called "The Picnic" Geoff used his signature brush strokes to create the painting's central  figure (believed to be a self-portrait of Thomas Cole) as well a collection of seemingly period frames for party-goers to use as props for photo ops.

Held on a beautiful private estate on the Hudson river, the event is always on or near July 4th, thus the patriotic theme throughout.

The interior of the tent continues the theme in red and whites stripes on the table and a big dramatic bunting across the expanse of the tent.

The evening's finale was marked by a spectacular display of fireworks!
