To Do Wednesday: Artful Giving

Sir Elton John

As an annual fixture at Elton John’s ever-raucous Academy Awards party, you’ve been a longstanding and highly generous supporter of the Elton John AIDS Foundation (got to keep those invites flowing somehow. How else are you going to be BFFs with Katie Price?). Tonight you’ll continue your support of the good cause at a slightly less paparazzi-heavy event. The foundation is hosting a fine-art photography exhibition. The portfolio features pics from David LaChapelle, Alex Prager, Ed Ruscha and Hedi Slimane, and the unique prints are available for purchase only as a set. You know what that means: call the bank, get your affairs in order, take a deep breath and sign on the dotted line. Tonight you’re coming back with a slew of new art for your whitewashed walls. To a fine Oscar party, and Sir Elton!

EJAF Fine Art Photography Portfolio II, at Marian Goodman Gallery, 24 West 57th Street, 6 to 8 p.m. Free and open to the public.
