Art Haus for Fountain House gave a benefit party on May 9, 2007 at New York’s super club Marquee. According to the Fountain House Website, “Proceeds will benefit Fountain House, an award-winning, 59-year old non-profit organization that provides housing, employment, wellness and educational services to men, women, and young adults living with major mental illness. Fountain House helps some 1,300 people in New York City each year….. ArtHaus will feature an exhibit and sale of limited edition photography (including a portrait of Glenn Close) by the famed fashion and celebrity photographer Francesco Scavullo, along with work by the professional artists of Fountain Gallery, a not-for-profit cooperative representing nearly 40 artists living and working with mental illness. All Fountain Gallery artists are members of Fountain House, and they live with bipolar disorder, depression, schizophrenia or other chronic mental illnesses, as did Scavullo.”
For more on the art displayed at the party, see our Art Section.

Guest stars at the party included Glenn Close and Joe Pantoliano. Joe co-stars with Marcia Gay Harden in the upcoming film Canvas about a family dealing with the challenges of living with mental illness. Joe spoke at the party, both about his upcoming film and also about the challenges he faced living with what he now believes was a bipolar mother.

The incredible acrobatic troupe AntiGravity performed to a crowd of young fashionistas, primarily attractive women who could obviously afford to attend a charity event; there were very few men in attendance. So if you are a guy in the city, check out the next Fountain House event. You may benefit society in more than one way.
