On December 13th, we held our first exhibit at Open Source Gallery in collaboration with the Five Collective. Some amazing artists donated their work:
- Michael Adno
- Colvin Brothers
- Judy Cuker
- Felicia Douglass
- Ana Karimi
- Rob Kulisek
- Chrissy Reilly
In addition, many talented musicians donated pieces in progress to our first ever mixtape, available here.
The event was a huge success— we estimate 100 to 150 people came out to enjoy the artwork, and we sold almost $300 worth of art and music. With the proceeds, we were able to supply Ms.Brown's classroom at PS.154 Jonathan D. Hyatt with 12 packs of Crayola color sticks and paper, fund Ms.S's class, which is the only arts classroom at the Young Women's Leadership School (a public all-girls school in queens) AND help fund Mr. Schweizer's classroom at Q309 as well.
More updates to come from these classrooms! Thank you to everyone who came out to enjoy the art and support arts education.
