The incredibly respectable Aperture Foundation (I’ve saved their thick magazines since I was an undergrad) is having their annual fund raiser, this year with a performance by The Strokes’ Albert Hammond Jr at the gorgeous Gehry-designed IAC Building next week!!!
I hope you’ll buy a ticket and join me there, especially because one could be free! The first 20 friends/Art Nerds to purchase a ticket at the $250 level with receive a free extra ticket for a date!
Just use the code artnerd and follow this link.
AND- even more. One of those 20 people will win a subscription to Aperture Magazine (which is worth $75)
Woohoo! It’s gonna be a blast. xoxoLori
