This Weekend's Parties: Jackass Makes It To The MoMA (The Decline Of Western Civilization Is Nigh)

by Chiara Atik · October 12, 2010

Who Was There: Julian Schnabel, Frieda Pinto, Jessica Chastain, Jame Franco, Madonna, Edie Falco, Emma Roberts

Artists were asked to submit work that encompassed one of the following themes: Knowledge Is Power, Teachers Inspire, Creativity, Innovation, and Community. All proceeds benefit the
