Julianne Moore really can do it all, can’t she? The newly minted Emmy winner and perennial Oscar nominee takes a break from her low-key West Village lifestyle to host a benefit for Positive Exposure, an arts nonprofit designed to change public perception of genetic and cognitive differences. Her fellow hosts include designer Ralph Rucci and kiddie favorite Olivia illustrator Ian Falconer … Meanwhile, the New York Academy of Art celebrates perception-shifting imagery in its own way, with the Take Home a Nude auction and dinner. Among those potentially bidding on work by Yoko Ono and Ryan McGinness are event co-chair Mary Boone and guests Daniel Boulud and Brooke Shields.
