One of my favorite non-profits, Free Arts NYC on behalf of abused children, will hold its 8th annual art and photography auction and benefit, Portraits & Polaroids, on April 23 at Milk Gallery. Scarlett Johansson and Liv Tyler will co-host, and Simon de Pury of Phillips de Pury & Company will serve as auctioneer. Tickets start at $250. Last year's auction raised over $555,000. Ionarts readers are well aware of the significance that art has in our lives: the work that Free Arts does with children is a sublime confirmation.
