On Oct. 17, acclaimed artist Magda Love teamed up with the nonprofit organization together1heart, for an evening of fundraising, art and empowerment. The event, dubbed Love Is A Human Right, was held at 117 Beekman Street in the Seaport District in an effort to raise awareness and funds for together1heart. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, together1heart was created by Cambodian Humanitarian Somaly Mam and actress/activist AnnaLynne McCord in the fight against sex slavery and human trafficking.

The event featured a conversation from the organization’s founders Somaly Mam and AnnaLynne McCord, the music of classical pianist Chloe Flower and a silent auction presented by CNN’s Christopher Cuomo. Guests also enjoyed music by DJ Courtney K, cocktails, savory bites and sweets by celebrity baker Sugar Monster. In addition, Magda debuted her solo show, Love Is A Human Right; her work features stories of survivors who touched her life while visiting Cambodia with together1heart earlier this year.

Magda’s exhibit will remain on display at the Seaport through Oct. 22. In addition, on Oct. 22, she will be hosting a master art class from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM, which people can attend for free.

Other noted supporters of together1heart include Susan Sarandon, Shay Mitchell, Dominic Purcell, Serinda Swan, Briana Evigan, Rick Fox, Nicky Whelan, Tony Richardson, Jill Montgomery, Peter Kim, Sharon Stone, Mandana Dayani, Ariel Winter, Russell Simmons, Nicole Scherzinger, and Sanaa Lathan.
