In order to support the Brooklyn Artist Gym along with their highly effective community programs I have donated two pieces from Specimen for their "Everybody Gets Art" Benefit. Please view the press release bellow for more information, it sounds like a lot of fun!

Brooklyn, NY 11215

Show dates:
October 17th - 25th
Opening: Saturday, October 18th, 6 - 9pm
"Everybody Gets Art" Benefit: Saturday, October 25th, 6 - 10pm

In anticipation of Brooklyn's 111th year as a New York City Borough, The BAG Fund presents BKLYN:111, an exhibition, fundraising event, and dialogue about our urban space both as environment and as a participating factor in the creative process.

BKLYN:111 opens October 18th with a FREE reception during the AGAST Studio Tour, and closes in grand fashion on October 25th with the "Everybody Gets Art" party, beginning at 6pm.

At "Everybody Gets Art":
  • 110 works of art from 65 artists will hang on the wall
  • There will be 110 ticket holders
  • When a ticket holder's number is called, they will have 11 seconds to find the work of art they want and remove it from the wall
  • Party!
All the works of art are valued at more than the ticket price of $200. A filming of the art frenzy will constitute the 111th work. Collectors, meet artists! Artists, meet collectors! All proceeds go to The BAG Fund. You may preview the art at The BAG Fund website, or by coming to the BAG Gallery during the week of October 18th.

Tickets (to get art): $200
General Admission: FREE
