The Winter Show

WAS_2.jpg

The Winter Show is the leading art, antiques, and design fair in America, featuring 70 of the world’s top experts in the fine and decorative arts.

Held at the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City, the Fair highlights a dynamic mix of works dating from ancient times through the present day, and maintains the highest standards of quality in the art market. Each object at the Fair is vetted for authenticity, date, and condition by a committee of 150 experts from the United States and Europe.

The Winter Show is an annual benefit for East Side House Settlement, a community-based organization serving the Bronx and Northern Manhattan. East Side House’s programs focus on education and technology as gateways out of poverty and as the keys to economic opportunity.

All revenues from the Fair’s general admissions and the net proceeds from the Opening Night Party and other events go to East Side House and contribute substantially to its private philanthropic budget. No part of sales made by exhibitors is received by East Side House.

The HUMP! Film Festival

HUMP_1200x630.png

The HUMP! Film Festival has been bringing audiences a new kind of porn since 2005. The festival features short dirty movies—each less than five minutes—all created by people who aren’t porn stars but want to be one for a weekend. The filmmakers and stars show us what they think is hot and sexy, creative and kinky, their ultimate turn-ons and their craziest fantasies. Our carefully curated program is a cornucopia of body types, shapes, ages, colors, sexualities, genders, kinks, and fetishes—all united by a shared spirit of sex-positivity. HUMP! is a celebration of creative sexual expression. You will see films at HUMP! that shock you. You will see films at HUMP! that make you laugh. And you will see films at HUMP! that turn you on. You will also be touched by the sincerity and vulnerability with which these films are lovingly made. HUMP!’s main mission is to change the way America sees—and makes and shares—porn.

Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), the world’s largest private source of funding for food allergy research, will hold the 21st Annual Food Allergy Ball on Dec. 3, 2018, at the Ziegfeld Ballroom in New York City.

Food allergies among children have risen dramatically, increasing by 50 percent from 2007-2011, and every 3 minutes, a food allergy reaction sends someone to the emergency room. The need for therapies for life-threatening food allergies is urgent. FARE’s signature Food Allergy Ball has raised more than $12 million in the last five years to advance research and support life-changing initiatives on behalf of the 15 million American with food allergies.

FARE is pleased to announce that Kimberly Yates Grosso will be the Guest of Honor for her leadership and advocacy on behalf of families seeing life-changing therapies for food allergy. James R. Baker, Jr., MD, former CEO of FARE, will receive the Food Allergy Changemaker Award for his leadership at FARE, including the creation of the FARE Clinical Network, a bold collaborative that is changing the face of clinical care and accelerating food allergy research.

The Great Gatsby Party

Since December 2015, The Great Gatsby Party® has transformed the gilded halls of New York City’s Capitale. Every year, thousands of guests turn up for the sold-out event, outfitted in the fashion of the Roaring Twenties–flapper dresses, silk gloves, tuxedos, top hats–to revel the night away under swinging aerialists and the glitter of disco balls. This year, by popular demand, the Great Gatsby Party returns for the fourth time, for a two-night affair of the cocktails, fanfare, and decadence that so defined Fitzgerald’s celebrated novel.

2018’s Great Gatsby Party will take place on the evenings of November 30th and December 1st from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Capitale will once again play host to the event, bedecked in the elegant grandeur of the era. Similarly inspired by the 1920s, entertainment is scheduled throughout the night, with live music, theatrical acts, dancers, contortionists, showgirls, stilt walkers, and more.

The evening is sure to be a celebration of all the senses, with champagne flowing, spirits well-stocked, and an array of sweet treats specially prepared by a local bakery. So, put on your black tie finery and hit the town with us. Everyone will be talking about this Great Gatsby Party well after the lights come up.

2018 Fall Swim Gala

BFA_22506_2705282-1024x683.jpg

Join + POOL’s Co-Founders, Board of Directors, and friends at Totally No Boundaries, + POOL’s Fall Swim Gala, on Wednesday, November 14, at Pier 17 in the Seaport District NYC. The event will raise support for the continued development of + POOL so that everybody can #SwimintheRiver.

This year’s event will honor incessantly creative visionaries that have totally no boundaries. Much like + POOL, these individuals push the peripheries of creativity in their industries and collaborate with others to produce the outrageous things we love most about the world.

Claire Weisz is an architect and urbanist, and a founding principal of WXY. We’re inspired by her recent and ongoing work in New York City including the redesign of the Rockaway Boardwalks, Pier 26’s Boathouse/Restaurant, Battery Park’s SeaGlass Carousel, and The East River Blueway Plan. Her insight to co-found The Design Trust for Public Space shows that she shares our same vision of creating projects for the future. The vision that we need to be creating inclusionary, equitable spaces for everybody, with totally no boundaries to access or to good design.

Scott Lazer discovered filmmaking in college, and now works as a creative director and filmmaker directing music videos, short films, documentaries, and branded content for clients in music, advertising, film, and TV. He is currently the Director of Video Production at Dreamville, founded by J. Cole. His videos are surreal; his stories told through the lens of all organic everything. It’s a major vote of confidence when an artist trusts you to share their stories with the world, which is what J. Cole has done with Scott. We have the same trust with him, and can’t wait to see + POOL in his world.
