That’s ARTrageous!

Attention socialites and art aficionados: Tonight, Cipriani 42nd Street will be hosting the 6th Annual ARTrageous Gala Dinner and Art Auction, the second event of a two-part fundraiser benefiting Edwin Gould Services for Children & Families, the number one foster care agency in the city.

The live auction, hosted by Sotheby’s, will feature artists including Jeff Koons, Romero Britto, Donald Baechler, Spencer Tunick, Hamilton Aquiar, Will Cotton, Michelle Marie, Greg Lauren and Patrick McMullan. Many of the works up for bid are collaborations between the professionals and the truly creative folk—kids, namely foster care kids who tried their hand at self-expression on March 10 at the ARTrageous Children’s Day Carnival.

Cipriani 42nd Street, 110 East 42nd Street. 7 p.m. Cocktails and Silent Auction, 8 p.m. Dinner.
