Katie Ford and American artist Ross Bleckner hosted For Art’s Sake, marrying the fabulous worlds of modeling, fine art and charity. The sale of original artwork benefitted ACRIA, the Aids Community Research Initiative of America. 38 artists, including Marilyn Minter, Mario Sorrenti, Neckface and Terence Koh, contributed personal pieces created from the pool of Ford’s top models to make last night’s silent auction one of the most compelling and intriguing charity events of the past year. MDC caught up with the ardent supporters of the charity and talks to Matthew Hunt (creative director at Ford) about the whole idea of the night (see video below) which raised $125,000 in the span of a mere 2 hours.
