Our good friend and organizing Guru, John Trosko (featured on Daily Candy last week, lucky dog!), asked us if we would be the official photographers for the charity event, fresh stART 2006. Adi and I love being involved with local charities, but especially ones that support the arts! It’s so nice to mix up the current wedding season!
Last night, Los Angeles locals, art lovers and celebs arrived in droves to benefit therapeutic art programs for at-risk youth. fresh stART also provides “potential Los Angeles collectors with a personal connection to both established and emerging artists.”
Co-Chairs Cris McCall and Sally Horchow McCauley (these girls know everyone!) must have been absolutely thrilled with the phenomenal turnout of their event. The crowds started lining up more than an hour before it began. Within minutes of the doors opening, the little red dots started appearing across the walls of the Santa Monica Art Studios at the Santa Monica Airport. Nearly one hundred artists donated a portion of their proceeds to My Friend’s Place and A Window Between Worlds.
Here are a few of the hundreds of pics that we captured of the fresh stART supporters.
