Studio 42 hosts The 2004 Starving Artists Ball, a celebration of New York City's emerging downtown artists. This year's Ball features a keynote address from Honorary Artistic Chair and three-time Emmy®-nominee, Michael Imperioli. The co-chairs of the event are 2004 Tony Award®-winners Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx, of the Broadway musical Avenue Q. Now in its third year, the Starving Artists Ball draws hundreds of artists, funders, and arts-supporters together to celebrate the work of emerging talent and to raise funds for the Starving Artist Award, a cash grant of up to $7500 for an up-and-coming, New York City-based artist or arts organization. This year, Special Guest Presenter, Gail Merrifield Papp, will present the Jonathan Adler-designed Starving Artist Award to Julia Frodahl of Edison Woods. The evening consists of a VIP cocktail reception from 7:00-8:00pm, followed by the Starving Artists Ball from 8:00pm to midnight, which will feature a keynote address by Michael Imperioli; the presentation of the Starving Artist Award, a buffet dinner, two floors of open bars, passed hors d'ouevres, music, dancing, and an art exhibition of 20-30 emerging artists. In addition, Edison Woods, this year's recipient of the Starving Artist Award, will give a special performance. Attire is downtown formal. The 2004 Starving Artist Ball Invitation Committee includes legendary drag artist Lypsinka!, playwright Wendy MacLeod (The House of Yes), and film-maker/philanthropist Alexandra Shiva.
