Opening in New York/ Polaroid 50 50 50

September 20, 2011

Here are two photos from the Phillips de Pury opening last week in New York. I was in a group show for Polaroid, and Lady Gaga was creative director. It was a charitable auction and some of the other artists who contributed to the initiative included Mark Seliger, Patrick Demarchelier, Viggo Mortensen, Tyra Banks, James Franco, Matthew Rolston, Cynthia Rowley, Tory Burch and Chase Jarvis (among others).

OK this is nothing to do with art….well maybe!
