GOING INCOGNITO: A dressed-down Uma Thurman with son Levon Roan went almost completely unnoticed when she showed up at Sotheby’s Wednesday night for its event, “Modern Views: A Project to Benefit the Farnsworth House and the Glass House.” The crowd — including Yvonne Force Villareal, The Four Seasons’ Julian Niccolini, Gigi Mortimer and Olympia Scarry — were too busy checking out the silent auction items — works by the likes of Alessandro Twombly, Annie Leibovitz, Robert Morris and Karim Rashad, inspired by Mies Van Der Rohe and Philip Johnson’s respective architectural gems — to notice the actress, who kissed director Sarah Morris and plopped down on the floor to watch her film “Points of Line” screening in one room. Proceeds from the evening benefited the preservation of the two houses, including the $107,000 raised by a short live auction toward the night’s end.
