ARTNOIR + Artsy are excited to collaborate once again on the ARTNOIR From: Friends To: Friends Benefit Auction 2021 on July 13 - 27. The auction will exhibit a selection of almost over 30 talented visual artists who represent an emerging vanguard of visual artists and whose creativity will shape the cultural conversation for generations to come. After raising over $100K in funds in 2020 that went to ARTNOIR Jar of Love Fund, we are back in collaboration with Artsy to launch another initiative that gives back to our artistic community.
The ARTNOIR From: Friends To: Friends Benefit Auction is an online fundraiser that will provide seed funding for ARTNOIR’s newly launched Artistic Pathways Scholarship Fund, a new initiative that builds on the organization's purpose to help establish new narratives and access within the arts and culture spheres. Proceeds from the auction will be granted to MFA visual art students of color currently attending a CUNY or SUNY graduate arts program. The ARTNOIR Artistic Pathways Scholarship will also support grantees with career coaching, mentorship, art residency opportunities and exposure.
ARTNOIR is a global collective and a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to celebrate and highlight the work of creatives of color from around the world while catalyzing cultural equity across the arts and culture industries. We instigate all of the arts discipline and expose the intersectionality of visual art, music, literature, cinema, design and other artistic mediums to multicultural audiences. ARTNOIR offers an alternative perspective to the traditional arts narrative, supports the freedom of artistic expression for all, and provides a platform for bold acts of creativity and storytelling. www.artnoir.org
