Finally, The Doctor Prescribes M&Ms
Don’t let Raquel’s expression fool you—art is uplifting. That, in a nutshell, is the guiding principle behind RxArt, the nonprofit that works to install artworks in hospitals and healthcare facilities. To that end, the group is having its 12th anniversary benefit in New York Monday night, honoring Dan Colen, who is about to undertake a major installation at Brooklyn’s Kings County Hospital pediatrics unit. (Given the setting, he’s trading his occasionally R-rated material for something more PG: M&Ms.) Tickets are still available for the Monday night party, where art by Colen, Terry Richardson, Inez and Vinoodh (whose photograph Freja and Raquel with Bill Clinton by Chuck Close is above), Aurel Schmidt, Marilyn Minter, and more will be on auction. You can get a jump on bidding online, but to take it home, you’ll want to be able to fend off competitors at Milk Gallery on Monday night. Even if you don’t walk away with a piece, you won’t go without reward: Each attendee can pick their own T-shirt, courtesy of Pickwick & Weller.
