The late Steve Starr's original dream of having a 45-year career celebration came to life Dec. 12 (12/12/12) at The Murphy Auditorium in Streeterville, with an exhibition entited "The Face of News."
Framed pictures of past photographs Starr had taken, along with a projection on the screen, highlighted his life's work. Many local restaurants, such as RL, chipped in to supply food and specialty cocktails. At the VIP reception, several of his relatives stood up after hosts Bill Zwecker and Candace Jordan mentioned them. Longtime friend Stanley Paul played the piano throughout the evening, making it a first-class affair for friends of Starr.
