Last night, the New York Foundation for the Arts hosted its Hall of Fame Gala at Tribeca Rooftop, raising $400,000 for various programs catering to artists in the area.

Toby Usnik, Chief Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Officer & International Director at Christie's, helped chair the event, which included honorees Deborah Kass, Terry McMillan, the Ford Foundation, and Dwight Rhoden.

"When we consider who to select for the Hall of Fame each year, we look for artists and philanthropists whose work has made a significant change in the cultural community and expanded the audience for their medium and the arts in general," commented NYFA Executive Director, Michael L. Royce.
