Burton Morris has always been right on the pulse of pop culture. His art surrounded approximately 150 guests at Soho Contemporary Art Gallery in NYC, who came to celebrate race horse syndicate owner Sheila Rosenblum’s Resident Magazine cover on November 19th, 2015.
The art and the celebration came together in a tasteful way, with Morris’ celebration of ‘100 Years of Coca-Cola” (and its its meteoric rise in culture) paired with Sheila’s incredible rise within the equestrian world. Yes, she is a powerhouse and major influencer in just two years. Help did come from her horse, La Verdad, who has raised 1.6 million in winnings. What more, Sheila is working in one of the most male-dominated industries in the world. She is a mother, but also the owner of 20 horses in Belmont Park, some shared with other women, including Jill Zarin and Douglas Elliman CEO Dottie Elliman.
The evening was accented by hors d’oeuvres and breads, fantastic art celebrating Coca-Cola as well as one specially commission piece depicting Rosenblum’s La Verdad, guests such as Ramona Singer and Dorinda Medley, Bettina Bennett joined in on the fun. Even New York Racing Association President Christopher Kay made an appearance. Of course, Coca-Cola was served in the classic glass bottle Burton Morris is so fond of.
