Inside Russell Simmons' 2014 Art for Life Gala

For celebrities, no summer night is complete without a ticket to Russell and Danny Simmons Hamptons soiree: Art for Life. This year’s annual gala, which celebrated 15 years, honored featured artist Carrie Mae Weems and the philanthropy of former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, Goldman Sachs’ Valentino D. Carlotti, Lava Record’s Jason Flom, and Kimora Lee Simmons—who gave $1 million dollars to initiate a RUSH Teens scholarship program. In keeping to his hip hop roots, Simmons’ guests were treated to a performance by hip hop’s finest Kurtis Blow, Naughty by Nature and Doug E. Fresh.
