A benefit for Art For Life was held at Russell Simmons’ home in East Hampton, New York this weekend. Those in attendance included actress Ally Sheedy, singer/songwriter Kenneth Babyface Edmonds, actor Forest Whitaker and model Petra Nemcova.

The Art for Life Foundation believes art is a valid and natural part of a child’s life. It serves as a connection point between the mind and body and is an important link in a child’s ability to heal on every level. Because of this we have developed several programs over the years to bring the arts to children in places where it can help them heal.
