Two weeks ago I announced a labor of love collaboration project (plus some behind the scenes photos…) that’s been underway for the past few months. It’s a group art show called Made in Polaroid 50 | 50 | 50 – top artists from photography, painting, graffiti, filmmaking, design, theater, acting, sculpture and more all have come together to raise money for Free Arts NYC, a nonprofit that provides under-served kids and families with art education, mentoring, and support. Some seriously talented & famous artists and then…uh…me, have come together to make this happen. It’s finally here. I’m so damned excited. And, to be brutally honest, I toured the final show this weekend…It is seriously badass. [do yourself a favor and scroll through the photos in viewer above when done reading this post...]
The show is open to the public, for free, and on display for 2 more days at the Phillips de Pury Gallery Space at Milk studios NYC (450 west 15th, 3rd floor), from 10am to 6pm. If you are in NYC, or tri-state area, please don’t miss it. If you are able/willing to support/donate (any amount $5, $50, $500, or anything) to support this cause, please visit FreeArtsNYC here. Everyone in the project is humbly grateful for your giving.
