Wednesday night in Chelsea, we hosted cocktails and an evening of shopping for good in support of RxART. The charity aims to help children heal by partnering with artists to transform health-care facilities into inspiring, comforting environments. RxART advisory board member Jen Brill and founder/president Diane Brown were in attendance alongside Barneys’ CEO, Daniella Vitale, and designer Sander Lak of Sies Marjan.

Guests discovered the latest offerings, and a portion of the proceeds at the store were donated to RxART through the Barneys New York Foundation. Scroll on to see more from the evening’s festivities and to read more about the nonprofit’s important work for children.
