Last night on Wednesday September 14th, 2011 I had the pleasure of attending an amazing soiree at Phillips de Pury & Company. The art and entertainment community came together for the launch of Polaroid’s new instant mobile printer and a charity auction of the works created by these artists using the mobile printer.
The Made in Polaroid 50|50|50 Art Auction with Clos du Bois and Belvedere benefited Free Arts and original pieces by Tory Burch, Patrick Demarchelier, Will Cotton, Steven Klein, Norman Jean Roy, James Frey and more were sold. Notable attendees and artists included Serena Williams, Sting, Brad Goreski, Patrick Demarchelier, Todd Tourso from Haus of Gaga, Norman Jean Roy, Stefano Tonchi, Sante d’Orazio, Alexa Winner, Maripol, Anita Kunz, Steven Taylor, Chase Jarvis, Jennifer Juniper Stratford, Va$htie, Stella Im Hultberg, Michael Bernard and more. Guests sipped Clos du Bois North Coast Chardonnay, Belvedere cocktails, dined on sushi and mingled throughout the auction house while viewing the works. As the live auction began, guests eagerly bid on the extraordinary works, with proceeds benefiting Free Arts.
