Artists for Humanity — a program that helps young people create art for real clients and profit — hosted its 10th annual “Greatest Party on Earth” Saturday night. The evening started with a reception for benefactors, who mingled while sampling treats prepared onsite by Lydia Shire, and then moved to the first floor of the Artists for Humanity EpiCenter building, where there was more food, dancing, and performances by acts such as the Boston Circus Guild. VIPs included event co-chair Alyssa Scott; host committee member Alex Kravets; art dealer Abigail Ogilvy; organization cofounder Jason Talbot, who talked up AFH’s capital campaign for expansion; and executive director Susan Rodgerson, who presented the 2015 EpiCenter Award to New England Aquarium president and CEO Nigella Hillgarth.
