RxArt’s good friend and a man of many talents (DJing included) Simon de Pury has collaborated with Casio to design a couple of new colorways in the brand’s popular G-Shock series. The watch will commemorate Simon de Pury’s forthcoming exhibition “PURYPARISGRAPHY,” which will be on display from January 3 to 29 at colette. The watch is limited to just 20 pieces and features an engraved back, as well as a package created from his photographs. The accessory will be available from colette on January 19.

    Congrats to Simon on his upcoming exhibit!

  • Thank You to Our Supporters

    2011 was an incredible year for RxArt.  Thanks to all of our supporters, RxArt expanded in multiple capacities.  In April, we completed the installation of Jason Middlebrook pieces at San Francisco General Hospital's Psychiatric Emergency Unit.  We launched Between the Lines, Volume 3, our most extensive coloring book to date, at our  CHANEL Beaute-sponsored gala in September.  Our new website launched this fall, and we added another full-time employee to our small (but growing!) team.  We're thrilled that we'll be able to complete several new installations within the first two months of the new year: a beautiful mural by Trenton Doyle Hancock will be installed in Houston's Memorial Hermann Hospital; 14 James Welling photographs will be installed in Atlanta; and, thanks to the generosity of Agnes Gund, a series of prints from the Lincoln Center Vera List Art Project will be installed in New York's Radiology Department of Metropolitan Hospital.

    We could not be more excited about the year ahead.  With our high-energy team and dedicated supporters, we are poised for a year of unprecedented growth.  Partnerships are in the works with major national brands, which will provide RxArt with increased exposure across the country.  We're working to make RxArt a truly national organization, changing patient and staff experiences in hospitals around the country!

    We hope you'll stay tuned throughout the coming year and help us along our incredible journey.

  • RxArt + Glassybaby

    RxArt + glassybaby

    Last week, glassbaby hosted a beautiful candle lit evening (pun intended) with RxArt for the release of the new glassybaby RxArt candle gift set designed by Cythnia Rowley.

    RxArt Board Member, Cynthia Rowley chose a selection of raspberry sorbet, peter pan and eggplant as the RxArt glassbaby gift set. 10% from the sale of each gift set will be donated to RxArt.

    glassybaby was founded by Lee Rhodes.  She was fighting cancer when she first dropped a tea light in a colorful, hand-made votive. She found great healing and hope in the light of a lit glassybaby.

    We want to thank glassybaby and Cynthia Rowley for their continued support of RxArt!

  • Kiehl's

    Chris Salgardo, President, Kiehl’s USA and RxArt board member, kindly presented a check for $225,000.00 to The Koons Family Institute which is part of the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children.

    Thank you to Chris Salgardo and Jeff Koons for always supporting great causes like ICMEC and RxArt!

  • A Wonderland of Merry

    “A Wonderland of Merry”

    Our friend Jeff Koons continues his good-will and holiday spirit.  Last night, Kiehl’s held a special event at their NYC flagship store celebrating our friend Jeff Koons’ latest collaboration with Kiehl’s.  A Kiehl’s limited-edition Creme de Corps Holiday Collection with labels featuring Jeff Koons artwork “Tulips.”  The label features Koons’ “Large Vase of Flowers,” which was inspired by the Queen’s Bedchamber at Versailles.

  • InStyle 2010 Gift Guide

    As most of you know, the holiday season is right around the corner.  So when your frantically writing down your X-Mas wish list don’t forget about our coloring book, Between the Lines, Volume 2InStyle Magazine has graciously listed our coloring book in this season’s InStyle 2010 Gift Guide.  So be sure to grab one!

    It can be found in many MoMA gift shops across the US, The Gagosian Gallery Shop, The Standard Hotel LA, and RSVP Gallery in Chicago.  If you can’t find it there, just head over to RxArt’s webstore.  It is a great gift for any age.  It brings out the artist in all of us!

  • Was. Epic.

    In a word, last night’s bash in honor of our 10th birthday was epic—relive the magic through these photos!

    Our event designers and producers, Cait&Jules, transformed the Art Directors Club into a sparkling oasis that glowed with celebratory hues of red and gold while Callahan Catering served bite-sized edible works of art (with mini one-shot beverages as the perfect compliment). Guests split their time bidding on a noteworthy array of contemporary pieces, admiring the spinning abilities of our guest DJs, and partaking in what was the most exhilarating live auction New York has ever seen (thanks to the energy and enthusiasm of auction-world-legend Simon de Pury)! And the icing on our proverbial 10th Anniversary cake? The arrival, albeit late, of James Franco, who so studiously finished his evening class at Yale and traveled all the way from New Haven to support our cause.

    In summary, we couldn’t be more proud of the last decade and more importantly, we couldn’t be more grateful to everyone who had a hand in the growth and success of RxArt. Thank you for a truly unforgettable night!
