On Saturday, August 19, 2017, RxArt held The LA Party at the beautiful Beverly Hills home of Gina and Josh Abraham to celebrate the expansion of RxArt’s Projects in Los Angeles.
The Party introduced RxArt’s newest project in the region – with Ed Ruscha at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles – to the community, whose support helped to bring in more than half of the project’s budget.
We also celebrated the first LA Project, which is at Cedars-Sinai’s Maxine Dunitz Children’s Health Center featuring the work of Sam Falls, Urs Fischer, and soon Laura Owens. Sam Falls took the stage to speak about his role in bringing beauty and hope to the lives of hospitalized children.
Thanks to Eddie Ruscha for providing beats all night as DJ, to Walead Beshty for contributing your fantastic design to the RxArt Tote Bag, and to Twist Eatery Catering for the delicious food.
Our deepest thanks to those whose lead support is helping to make the Ruscha Project possible: Betsee Isenberg and Tom Atencio, Gagosian Gallery, Carole and Bob Kopple, Leta Grzan, and the generous support of our guests and donors.
Additional thanks to contributing partners: Marciano Art Foundation, Material Vodka, Smart Beer, Sprinkles Cupcakes, and sweetgreen.
Attendees included Ed and Danna Ruscha, Sam and Erin Falls, Kathryn Andrews, Stacen Berg, Cecile Le Paire, Elsa Longhauser, Jamie Goldblatt Manné, Nathalie Marciano, Emily Ratajkowski and Jeffrey Magid, Hans Peter Thomas, Cathy Siegel Weiss, among many others.
