There wasn’t a specific dress code for the seventh annual Greenway Gala on Tuesday night, but guests were asked to celebrate the color palate of the ariel sculpture by Brookline artist Janet Echelman. VIP revelers — who included Echelman and Greenway Conservancy development director Jodi A. Wolin — wore oranges and fuchsia to mirror the art, which has been suspended over the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway since May. The evening included a dinner, performance, and a profession of lanterns made by young artists affiliated with Artists for Humanity.
