    The Unframed art exhibit/book launch event will feature complimentary hors d’oeuvres, a no-host bar, and live harp music by Wendy Tahara, The Heartfelt Harpist. Waldorf will also perform her soon-to-be-released song “Delicate Boy.” The artist-actress-musician-model will also sign copies of her new book.
