Looking for ways to support the creative community while giving back? Here are three uptown galleries and makers selling art and more with a cause–a portion of the proceeds will go to groups affected by the coronavirus crisis.
Special-order a #New York Strong canvas tote from this local bag designer and she'll donate $15 to Win, a non-profit that helps homeless women and children–a group needing more help than ever.
This Manhattanville gallery has donated its current group exhibition, “Base 12: Don’t Call It a Comeback,” to the Fight Coronavirus & Artist Aid online auction organized through Christie's. Every artist will donate a part of the proceeds from the sale of their work to GlobalGiving's Coronavirus Relief Fund. Bidding closes on Saturday, April 18.
Uptown artist M. Tony Peralta has issued a limited-edition series of posters and T-shirts featuring an image of a nurse wearing curlers and a face mask. Thirty percent of the proceeds of any purchase from the "Enfermera con Rolos" series will go to the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund supporting health care workers and others.
