RxArt Raises $600,000 Honoring KAWS

By Emory Lopiccolo

November 18, 2014

On November 17, RxArt honored Brian Donelly (also known as KAWS) with the first annual RxArt Inspiration Award at their annual benefit party. The non-profit organization creates comforting spaces based on the therapeutic potential of visual art inside pediatric hospital facilities. It works with contemporary artists to make site-specific installations to provide relief from anxiety and the pain of illness for children and families.

Co-chaired by Agnes Gund, Emmanuel Perrotin, and Honor Fraser, the event, which was held at The Altman Building, raised upwards of $600,000 through a silent and live auction led by Brook Hazelton. Notable guests included Bill Powers, Jose Parla, Erik Parker, and Ryan McGinness.
