WHEN ARTS COLLIDE--What happens when the Music World meets the Art World? For one thing, it gets very crowded. As it did Monday night, when, in a benefit for the Museum of Contemporary Art, Joni Mitchell showed her paintings and several hundred music-industry types crushed into the James Corcoran Gallery. Backgrounded by Mitchell's new album, "Dog Eat Dog," Wendy Stark, who organized the event with Marcia Medavoy, chatted with Wallis Annenberg and Dr. John Gervace, TV producer and art collector Doug Cramer, Barry Krost, Peter Asher, Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Penny Marshall, San Francisco's Bill Graham, the oh-so-youthful-looking Barbi Benton and longtime MOCA supporter Marcia Weisman. Weisman was ecstatic, saying "We got all these new people and we made a few bucks too."
SHAREing--Manual labor this week from the hard-working gals from SHARE--Share Happily and Reap Endlessly--as they packed up 10,000 copies of this year's date books. Ruth Berle, Wendy Goldberg, Joni Horowitz, Anne Jeffreys Sterling, Sandra Moss, Marilyn Hudson, Bonnie Parker (who just sold her first script idea to hubby Jameson Parker's "Simon & Simon") and Marianne Rogers joined president Judy Feder, Pam Korman and Marilyn Katleman and dozens of others packing the books at the old Judy Garland house in Holmby Hills (now owned by Verna Harrah). The $100,000 raised by the "Day by Day" books helps make up the more than $1 million SHARE gives this year to charities such as the Exceptional Children's Foundation and the children's therapy room at the Santa Monica Rape Treatment Center.
