A diverse crowd gathered at Spa for the unveiling of the official artwork and logo for the Muscular Dystrophy Association's (MDA) annual Anchors Aweigh fund-raiser. The cocktail party served double duty: In addition to promoting the MDA's event, it was also affiliated with Artexpo, the international art trade show at the Javits Center March 8 to 12. Many of the guests were artists and other art world folks who were exhibiting or attending the show. The event also featured an appearance by Miss USA 2001, Kandace Krueger, and a performance by the rap group Run-D.M.C.

The Keith Herring-style artwork--created by the artist Marco--features bold, bright colors combined with simple shapes and designs. The art will serve as the logo for Anchors Aweigh 2001, which will be held on May 21. The dinner cruise aboard The Horizon will feature news anchors and print and radio personalities from ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, UPN and NY1 as special guests.
