HAVING A BALL: Model Coco Rocha and Bryan Batt of “Mad Men” will cohost the Museum of Art and Design’s first-ever young patron’s gala on Oct. 14. The fete will celebrate the museum’s one-year anniversary in its Brad Cloepfil-designed home on Columbus Circle, and is the first time the institution is targeting a younger generation of museumgoers and artists, with ticket prices starting at $150 and dancing to DJs Paul Sevigny and Harley Viera-Newton. (The museum’s annual black-tie Visionaries Gala has focused on more established artists and well-heeled patrons.) Dubbed the “Paperball,” the event also celebrates the opening of a new exhibit, “Slash: Paper Under the Knife,” which features site-specific works made from paper. As part of the event, a raft of fashion designers, photographers and artists have designed works from paper — such as dresses and accessories — to be sold at the party, including Matthew Williamson, Craig McDean, James Rosenquist, Issey Miyake, Gemma Kahng, Slava Mogutin, Donald Deal, Yeohlee Teng and Lela Rose.
