On Wednesday, October 16th, RxART hosted the 2019 PARTY at 432 Park Avenue in New York City. The RxART Inspiration Award was presented to artist Nicolas Party by Stéphane Aquin, Chief Curator of the Hirshhorn Museum, in recognition of Party’s forthcoming project planned for transforming the Operating Department at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). Heather Hasson, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of FIGS, was presented with the RxART Innovation Award by her FIGS Co-Founder Trina Spear in celebration of RxART’s forthcoming project with the medical apparel company and artist Urs Fischer designing children’s pajamas, which will also be launched at CHLA. Over 200 Guests at the sold-out Dinner and After PARTY spent the evening celebrating these two remarkable RxART collaborators. The funds raised from the success of the gala will help RxART produce these two and five more projects in the year ahead.
