Artsy presents Coalition for the Homeless: Live Benefit Auction 2019.
The 25th Anniversary ARTWALK NY will take place November 18, 2019 at Spring Studios. Purchase tickets to the event featuring Artist Honoree Katherine Bernhardt and Philanthropic Honoree Michael Platt here!
ARTWALK NY brings together hundreds of artists, art-lovers and other compassionate New Yorkers to celebrate the role of “artist-as-activist,” to raise awareness about the crisis of mass homelessness, and to support programs that directly help homeless men, women, and children.
Tonight, nearly 62,000 New Yorkers – including 22,000 children – will sleep in homeless shelters, while thousands more bed down on the streets. The Coalition for the Homeless provides emergency food and clothing, eviction prevention, crisis services, permanent housing, job training and special programs for kids to over 3,500 people a day. Since their founding in 1981, the Coalition has given more than one million homeless New Yorkers a way off the streets.
Support Coalition for the Homeless by bidding in this year's benefit auction, featuring works by Katherine Bernhardt, Ed Ruscha, Cindy Sherman, Jenny Holzer and more.
