2017.11.28 We are proud to present our first ever online student auction! Bid by 11/28 on https://artstart.auction/
Led by Alex Bass, this auction fundraises for the nonprofit Art Start, which aims to nurture the voices, hearts, and minds of New York City’s underserved youth through consistent creative workshops inside homeless shelters, alternative to incarceration programs, and partnering youth agencies (read more at www.art-start.org). Here is a video discussing the work Art Start does in our community: https://vimeo.com/62202409
To support Art Start, we have created an online student art auction featuring painting, drawing, photography, and pottery made by friends of mine at Columbia, Barnard, Parsons, and FIT. You can bid on these pieces by going to https://artstart.auction/ and clicking on the “auctions” tab. 30% of the proceeds will go to the artists themselves for creating the work and 70% will be donated to Art Start.
If you would like to contribute in another way, you are welcome to submit a general donation to Art Start at https://www.crowdrise.com/art-education-in-nyc/fundraiser/
