Art and more that gives back


Alana Dee Haynes, Whale Waves, 2020

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.


Hashbags

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.




Ki Smith Gallery

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.




Peralta Project

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.
