Join us to celebrate another great year and an exciting programming schedule to come–2017 will be bigger and better than ever!

Each year our annual fundraiser has a greater impact on our programming than the last. This year’s fundraiser will include food, drinks, a silent auction of artwork and special guests: curator Omar López-Chahoud (Untitled) and Elise Long (Spoke the Hub)!

Our silent auction will include work by Josef Albers, Francesco Simeti, Tanya Habjouqa, Anja Matthes, Ethan Crenson and many more!

Our goal is to raise $20,000 to support our 2017 programming!

Our 2017 schedule will include exhibitions by: Liinu Grönlund, Francesco Simeti, Sana Obaid, Andrew Snyder, Omar López-Chahoud and Kimberly Mayhorn

This past year saw amazing exhibitions by art collectives, art groups and artist-run spaces from across the globe including: Rawiya (Middle East), guerilla-art.mx (Mexico), i Collective (Germany), Another Space (Denmark), Healing Arts Initiative (NYC), Dimensions Variable (Florida), Prosjektrom Normanns (Norway), /rive (NYC), SiTE:LAB (Michigan), Videokaffe (Finland) and Boa Mistura (Spain). We presented public art projects by Boa Mistura, Yescka and Ethan Crenson. Panel discussions explored themes from representations in the Middle East to art and collaboration to stigma of mental illness. Our children’s workshops helped kids to create soap box cars, boats, skateboards, forts, greenhouses, robots and more–and our arts education program made appearances at the World Maker Faire, Emoticon, Art Slope and the Brooklyn Public Library!

A big thank you to this year’s sponsors: Associated Market, Big Nose Full Body, Trader Joe’s and Warsteiner

Early bird tickets will be available until December 1st. Can’t make it to the fundraiser? Donate here!
