The answer: Merce Cunningham‘s 75th birthday. The question: What do Giorgio Armani, Gene Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, Bette Midler, Yoko Ono, Robert Rauschenberg, Robert Redford, Joan Rivers and Tommy Tune have in common? They are some of the luminaries making birthday cards for Cunningham.

The choreographer’s birthday is April 16. The cards, which will be displayed at the Cartier store on Fifth Avenue in New York, will be auctioned to raise money for the Cunningham Dance Foundation.
