It’s hard to imagine a juicier hostess situation than Scarlett Johansson and Liv Tyler helming the Free Arts N.Y.C. art auction at the Milk Gallery. Giant nightclub gal Amy Sacco helped put this thing together, so you know it’ll have some pizzazz! Artists include Simon de Pury, Chuck Close, Jeremy Blake and Adam Fuss, with proceeds benefiting at-risk and abused children. Further south in Tribeca, there’s “Where’s Darfur? A Tribute to Heroes, Hope and the Resilient Human Spirit,” benefiting the American Jewish World Service Darfur Project. Broadway show people turn up, and you know there’s no people like ’em!
[Free Art N.Y.C. Annual Art Auction Benefit, Milk Gallery, 450 West 15th Street, 6 to 9 p.m., www.freeartsnyc.org; “Where’s Darfur? A Tribute to Heroes, Hope and Resilient Human Spirit,” the Knitting Factory, 74 Leonard Street, www.knittingfactory.com.]
