The holidays are always a great time for giving which is why we were thrilled to team up with NYC online art gallery Uprise Art to donate several custom framed artworks to the Free Arts NYC Junior Board 3rd Annual Art Auction.
Free Arts NYC provides underserved children and families with a unique combination of educational arts and mentoring programs that help them to foster the self-confidence and resiliency needed to realize their fullest potential.
The auction was held at D’Agastino and Fiore accompanied by music from CHAPMAN. Sponsors included Bombay Sapphire, Fatty Sundays, Feast, Lagunitas, The Meatball Shop, Patacon Piso, Bar Catalina, Posterscope, Pop Social, Simply Framed, and Wine Awesomeness. Below you can see the donations in action, with attendees scoping out which pieces to bid on.
