How 50 Artists Raised $125,000 for Charity in One Night

Remember the group fine art show I was bubbling about in September? I intro’d it here, updated the project here. In short, 50 fellow artists — some of the worlds best known photographers, street artists, fashion designers, painters, celebrities, sculptors and more — came together at the lofty Phillips de Pury gallery in NYC to raise money for charity…

This here video chronicles just a part of the story–the making of my piece (wish we were able to chronicle everyones!), the preview of the work, and the gala auction (sneak peeks of Sting and Serena Williams), in short, it’s everything we could muster capturing on video amidst all the hard work…notwithstanding the final, staggering result that we achieved together, raising more than $125,000 for Free Arts NYC. I’m proud and humbled. Hope you dig this and hope you can find a way to help one of your favorite non-profits with your art in the coming year.

As a tribute, here’s a list of my co-collaborators, the artists who worked to raise the money. Consider cherry picking a few names from the list–famous or not–and taking a peek at their work online. In alphabetical order: Chris Anthony, Damian, Aquiles, Tyra Banks, Gary Baseman, Michael Bernard, Liz Brizzi, Scott Brooks, Tory Burch, Taylor Christensen, Peter Coffin, Anne Collier, Will Cotton, Sante D’Orazio, Patrick Demarchelier, Phillip-Lorca DiCorcia, Eine, Fabrizio Ferri, James Franco, James Frey, Brad Goreski, Olaf Heine, Stella Im Hultberg, Krista Holt, Hush, Chase Jarvis, Norman Jean Roy, Sivia Ji, Joka, Eric Joyner, Kinsey, Steven Klein, Anita Kunz, Vashtie Kola, Jim Lambie, Aled Lewis, Phillip Lim, Charles Lloyd, Nate Lowman, Maripol, Marily Minter, Nico Muhly, Dabsmyla, Estevan Oriol, Billy Norrby, Alex Pardee, Hilary Pecis, Joshua Petker, Jean Pigozzi, Rob Pruitt, Brett Ratner, Joey Remmers, Risk, Matthew Rolston, Cynthia Rowley, Aaron Ruell, Natalie Shau, Jason Shawn Alexander, Joe Sorren, Jennifer Juniper Stratford, Gary Taxali, Max Vadukul, Nick Walker, and Kent Williams.

    Gun-wise, each manufacturer has made their guns much more
    recognizable. It completely changes how Fight for Your
    Life works, by giving you a bundle of dynamite to use to kill an enemy and allowing
    you to move at full speed. However, the chance to appease
    the fans having a full-blown Metroidvania game was delivered
    with a few shortcomings. The Halo series would prove a much less immersive experience without the
    intricate, imaginative storyline and personable characters.
    Borderlands 2 Key Generator 2 covers five years after the opening in the
    vault (the end on the first game) as well as the scene is once yet again laid in Pandora.
    However, the opportunity to appease the fans which has a full-blown Metroidvania game was
    delivered with a few shortcomings. Which meant Mickey could not get up there till he was sure it was safe for inquisitive ten year old
    boys. However, the Intel Core i5-3570K Quad Core, backed up by a good GPU, handles it like
    a boss. With the performance of various PC parts constantly on the rise
    and their dropping prices, it’s easier than ever to build a gamer’s PC that can handle
    moderate to heavy gaming like a boss. The Darkness had a unique plot and some fun features but it was
    not a top seller.
