Join us on July 20 as we celebrate the explosive and dazzling career of the world renowned artist and film maker, Julian Schnabel. Just in the past year, his film, At Eternity's Gate, garnered numerous nominations for Willem Dafoe as best actor and Julian for not only directing, but screenwriting as well. Schnabel's paintings, sculptures and works on paper have been exhibited all over the world. His extraordinary solo exhibition at the Musee d'Orsay, in which he curated works by Cezanne and Van Gogh to hang with his own, further demonstrated his polymathic powers.
Our evening is all the more exciting as we also honor the magnificent multifaceted Donna Karan. She has always shaped style with her signature cross-cultural design and established the Urban Zen Foundation dedicated to the combination of mind, body and spirit while preserving the wisdom of ancient culture. As part of The Haiti Artisan Project, Donna works directly with artisans to elevate design, provide vocational education, job creation and raise awareness to the global market.
Our friend and past honoree, the brilliant Laurie Anderson will ignite the night by doing something as special as she. Both Laurie and Donna are dear friends with Julian making the night even more sensational with irresistible combinations. To be sure, this will be a one-time only event, as only LongHouse can do. Reserve your tickets now. How can you resist?
