Flood the Art Market
Artists Helping Artists Hurt by Hurricane Sandy
Hurricane Sandy hit New York City hard. Everyone in the storm’s path was affected and its aftermath has proven devastating to the art community. Artists lost reference materials, tools, spaces, and most heartbreakingly, work.
After a successful showing at Art Basel Miami Beach, Flood the Art Market: Artists Helping Artists Affected by Hurricane Sandy will mount an exhibition of donated works at the Cristin Tierney Gallery in Chelsea on Monday, January 28.

Marcos Chavez and his communications design students at Parsons The New School for Design generously created our logo and identity package in conjunction with the design firm TODA who are conceiving our merchandise — all in the name of our cause. Pamela Thompson and her students at High Road School in Connecticut are donating their time to print our t-shirts.
