The Foundation of Contemporary Arts benefit show that just opened last week is phenomenal. Not only for the fact that there are nearly 200 pieces of artwork, but also for the rare occurrence that superstars like Damien Hirst are housed in the same gallery as young bloomers like Sarah Crowner and Justin Adian. With the funding that is raised from sales of the pieces, paintings and sculptures donated by the artists, the foundation continues to support individual artists, groups, and organizations. Mr. Jasper Johns (being one of the organizers) hung the artworks himself, allowing us to see the significance of the curator’s eye, in the otherwise overwhelming amount of art.
