The evening honored Young Audiences Arts for Learning, and Williams was inspired to create the party with American Express to support and foster the work and ideas of artists.
“We have to support and preserve the young artists at all costs,” Williams told The Hollywood Reporter while sitting in one of the museum’s galleries. “Because everything in here, what you’re wearing, what you’re holding, what you have on your nails, what’s on your face, what’s in this room — the lights, the sculptures, the floor — everything was someone’s epiphany.”
The evening began with a cocktail hour, and attendees, primarily American Express Platinum card members and VIP guests, could browse a silent auction, which included everything from a yellow Chanel purse to one-of-a-kind yellow Beats speaker and headphones to custom Pharrell Williams = Adidas Human Race NMD Sneakers. Visual artist Daniel Arsham created three installations for the event. Arsham and Williams have known each other since 2005 and collaborated in the past, and these three pieces were works that Williams had seen in past iterations and invited Arsham to bring to the event.
Pharrell Williams has a rotating team of 12 nurses on his payroll to help care for his baby triplets. The Happy superstar and his wife Helen Lasichanh welcomed two boys and a girl in January, 2017, and they have had their hands full ever since, as they are also parents to their nine-year-old son Rocket. Despite his busy home life, Pharrell has managed to keep churning out hit songs as a producer and artist, while also touring with his reunited band N*E*R*D and working on various fashion projects.
However, Pharrell admits none of that would be possible if he and Helen didn’t have full-time help as they rely on the professional support system day and night. “We’re not alone…,” he admitted on new talk show GMA Day. “Our parents are involved and we also have a staff; in terms of nurses, we have like, 12 people… Twelve ladies are in constant rotation: three in the morning, two at night.” Although the babies are not even two years old, Pharrell admits he is already starting to dread the day his little girl starts dating.
