Feelin’ the FEVA at ‘Icons’


People are calling the Federation of East Village Artists’ “Icons” event on May 23 at Capitale on the Bowery the most sumptuous Lower East Side bash in as long as anyone can remember. Clockwise from top: the crowd was feeling the FEVA; Chino Garcia of CHARAS, left, and theater virtuoso Aaron Beall; artist James Romberger with his paintings of the evening’s honorees: from left, Jonas Mekas, Ellen Stewart and Miguel Algarin and, not shown, Tuli Kupferberg and Allen Ginsberg, who was honored posthumously; performance artist David Leslie and Beall were feeling solid.
