Barry has all the words, and he links to all the important information on his post: Williamsburg's NUTUREart is having a benefit party, and they're throwing it in Manhattan. I suppose the location may have been chosen partly for the same reasons presidential candidates come to Manhattan, but CUE Art Foundation also has more room for all the people I would expect are going to want to be there.
It's a very good thing for emerging artists, and those who love them.
Barry and I would be excited about this event even if we weren't the honorees, and with William Powhida doing the introductions, it would seem risky to stay away no matter whom he was asked to talk about.
We're told tickets may be purchased on the website beginning Wednesday.
