On February 27, non-profit arts organization Baxter St at the Camera Club of New York hosted its second annual STAND WITH US celebration. The evening’s gala honored philanthropist Sarah Arison, artists Jesse Chun and José Parlá, as well as former Baxter St President Allen Frame. President Michi Jigarjian and Director Libby Pratt welcome over 300 guests to the star-studded party inspired by New York in the ’90s—complete with a pretzel stand, a caricature artist and a facsimile of a bodega selling scratch-off lottery tickets for a chance to win limited edition prints by the likes of Matthew Leifheit, Hannah Whitaker, Matthew Porter and others. Among those in attendance were Black Thought from the band The Roots, Stretch Armstrong, Zoe Buckman, Brian Donnelly (aka KAWS), Casey Fremont, Rashid Johnson, Anne Pasternak and Marlies Verhoeven.
