Every year this is one of my favorite events (see 2009’s highlights), both for the sights, the cause, and most of all the company! Editor-extraordinaire Dana Albarella and her husband/artist Todd James put together this amazing auction of fine art by their friends, including Shephard Fairey (Obey, the Obama Yes We Can poster, and more), Barry McGee, KAWS, Sue Kwon, Brent Rollins/EgoTrip and more! And all the proceeds from The Block Party go to the HSNY’s GreenHouse program, which helps Rikers Island inmates get job training in urban horticulture to reduce recidivism. Below, check out some of the work of the Block Party artists, these aren’t specifically pieces that will be on sale tonite, though…..

Reserve your tickets here ($100/$75), and I’ll see you tonite! 7pm in Tribeca, NYC.

All the details are…after the jump!
