Stony Brook Foundation to Honor Actor Ed Harris

"Stars of Stony Brook" Gala to be held April 25.

Ed Harris, a four-time Academy Award nominee and writer/director, is one of the honorees at the Stony Brook Foundation's annual "Stars of Stony Brook" Gala on April 25, according to LookToTheStars.com.

“With Ed’s passion and star-power, this gala ... will not only refocus attention and support for the legacy of this pioneering modern artist but, as always, provide funds to help many students in-need realize their academic goals,” said Richard L. Gelfond, CEO of IMAX Corporation and the chairman of the Stony Brook Foundation Board of Trustees.

Along with Harris, the Stony Brook Foundation will also honor The Pollack-Krasner Foundation, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of artist Jackson Pollack's birth. That foundation supports artists around the world who demonstrate financial need. Founded in 1985, The Pollack-Krasner Foundation has donated more than $55 million to artists around the world.

In 2000, Harris actually portrayed Pollack in a film called Pollack, which Harris also directed.
