We need to raise money for Ira Cohen and his archives that have been displaced by the effects of the bedbug condition of his building. It has been an expensive and torrential experience.
Though Ira is for now staying peacefully at the Chelsea Hotel until he can return home.
This night is dedicated to Him. Be inspired by his work. Come and support this Benefit.
