My friend Ian Gerard is the brains behind GenArt, one of New York’s most legendary culture orgs. For over a decade, GenArt held art fairs, launched Zac Posen, threw film festivals, and was even kind enough to sponsor my tshirt launch at Fred Segal. During the financial collapse, several major backers pulled out, and GenArt folded.
Ian is raising funds for the filmmakers and designers negatively affected when GenArt folded. He’s also hoping to relaunch, starting with the GenArt Resurrection benefit. Because he’s a pretty excellent gentleman, I’m on the comittee for this, and may be doing some art shenanigans around it.
If you’re in town and have the bucks, I recommend it muchly.
