Art connoisseur Jon Bon Jovi and former METALLICA bassist Jason Newsted chatted together about art, music and charity at Art New York, which closed yesterday at Pier 94 in New York City. Jon and his wife Dorothea Hurley spent hours at both Art New York and Context New York with Nick Korniloff (founder of Art Miami LLC) talking with gallerists, artists and taking photos for fans.
Newsted, who has gone from playing metal to create modern art, sold a bunch of pieces that helped raise funds for the Perry J. Cohen Foundation. He celebrated his New York art debut with a private acoustic concert for friends at the Soho House on Saturday night.
