Decidedly in the realm of contemporary art, 100 people made New York Magazine's list of who to know in the art world, part of a feature titled "How to Make It in the Art World."

Those with influence are segmented into six sections: the Institutionalists, the Money, the Literati, the Dealers, the Artists, and the Young Blood.

Heavy with MoMA folks, the list covers many of the usual players in the field from collector Peter Brant to dealer Larry Gagosian, artist Cindy Sherman to critic Jerry Saltz (of New York Magazine), along with a few surprises.

Other rules in the article include "Pick your Artists and Stick With Them" and "Buy the Same Thing Everyone Else is Buying."
