    Paul Simon x NYU. That's what's going on on May 7.

    The NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development will honor legendary songwriter, the aforementioned Paul Simon, along with noted philanthropists Linda and Art Carter, at its benefit gala on Wednesday, May 7th.

    The evening's events will feature a special performance by Mr. Simon at the Beacon Theater, followed by a dinner reception at Per Se Restaurant. All funds raised at the gala will go towards student scholarships.

    Good music. Good cause. Good times.

    "At NYU Steinhardt, we celebrate the creative spirit, and the NYU Steinhardt Vision Award recognizes individuals whose creativity, passion, and innovative thinking have shaped the American experience," said Steinhardt Dean Mary Brabeck. "We're extremely proud to recognize this year's recipients – Linda and Art Carter for their generous gifts and passionate advocacy on behalf of the arts, children and education; and Paul Simon for his humanitarian outreach and distinctive musical vision which continues to inspire NYU Steinhardt students and people around the world."

    Linda and Arthur Carter's contributions as university leaders and their generous gifts to NYU and the Steinhardt School have deepened and enriched the culture and academic life of NYU. The Carters are supporters of New York City's cultural institutions as well as its schools, arts organizations, and programs that provide essential health services to all New Yorkers.
