On December 12th The Museum of Modern Art’s 2012 Jazz Interlude Gala honored artist, activist and filmmaker Spike Lee and philanthropists Mera and Donald Rubell. The night started with a cocktail reception in the museum. It was followed by a delicious benefit dinner with live music by jazz musician Terence Blanchard, whose music actually has been featured in numerous Spike Lee films. The evening ended with an after-party with dessert, dancing and great music by jazz artist Jason Moran and the Bandwagon. The 2012 Jazz Interlude event chair was Sherry Bronfman, with co-chairs Eboni S Gates and Noel Hankin.

I have always been a fan of Spike Lee’s bold and social justice themed films. Lee never shies away from calling a spade and spade and uses his platform to shine a light on causes that matter to him. Lee’s beautiful wife Tonya Lewis Lee and their incredibly stylish children, Satchel and Jackson, attended the event as well.
