Launching Issue 6 along with Jack Shainman and the new exhibition 'Travelogue' at The School was beyond — as in BEEEE-Y-OOOO-ND. If you missed it, you missed a really good thing.
The afternoon kicked off with a tour of mind-blowing work by artists that rock our senses in unexpected ways (read review here). Then, as the great clouds drifted away, we sprang into a celebration that had us on our feet until well beyond sundown. Like all great parties, the appointed end time came and went and nobody was ready to go home.
The incredible Toshi Reagon kicked off with a great set. Such talent! Swizz Beatz followed and kept us working the dance floor until we could hardly stand anymore. It was a day filled with laughter, art, conversation, plenty of puppies and lots of kids, and friends old and new connecting over food and drinks, all in the spirit of generosity and our shared love for the arts and humanity.
The experience left us feeling richer and reminded us that creativity requires love, care and community to blossom and to become vibrant and powerful.
Thank you Jack and Carlos for your generosity and inspiring spirit!
