VIDEO: NYC Galleries Join Forces at Hurricane Sandy Relief Benefit Party

Last Friday, Paul Kasmin Gallery and Artspace.com hosted a Hurricane Sandy Benefit Party at NYC’s Hotel Americano, kicking off their long-term collaboration to help raise funds for the ADAA Relief Fund aiding galleries impacted by the storm. The party launched a series of limited-edition prints based on artist William N. Copley’s work, “Think (Flag)” (1972),  with proceeds going to the cause. ARTINFO spoke to some of the guests — including ADAA director Linda Blumberg and Paul Kasmin’s Bethanie Brady  — about Chelsea’s ongoing recovery from hurricane damage and losses, and the ways in which galleries have overcome their competitive spirit to rally together.
