Charlie Day, Craig Ferguson, Lisa Kudrow Party at P.S. ARTS’ 25th Anniversary Bash

P.S. ARTS celebrated its 25th anniversary with a star-studded fundraising event, the pARTy, on Friday at NeueHouse Hollywood. The event helps support nonprofit organizations’ efforts to provide art education to underserved public schools and communities.

The A-list guests, including Adam Scott, Joel McHale, Lisa Kudrow, Johnny KnoxvilleCraig FergusonKathryn Hahn and Mark Duplass, walked the purple carpet before going into the venue to enjoy an eclectic variety of artwork. A silent art auction was the centerpiece of the night, but stands by the Offerman Woodshop and Oculus VR were perhaps the night’s most notable fixtures.

The Offerman Woodshop stand, run by “Parks and Recreation” actor Nick Offerman, invited guests to drill, sandpaper and wax their own candle-holders. Meanwhile, the Oculus VR stand treated eventgoers to a short demonstration of their latest virtual reality technology, Oculus Rift.

Charlie Day spoke about the important role art played in his life as the son of two music teachers.

The “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” star, who attended with his wife and co-star Mary Elizabeth Ellis, said, “The arts have been with me my whole life, I can’t imagine a world without them. I think it’s something that we can’t ever do away with and we have to support it.”

“Suits” actress Meghan Markle stressed the importance of being exposed to art from a young age.

“I think when you find the balance of not just having all the academic stuff, but the creative influence and impulse in everyday life is so important,” Markle said. “That’s what’s so great about P.S. ARTS, giving that access to kids who don’t have it, especially in underserved communities.”
