Thanks to all of you, this year’s NURTUREart benefit was a great success!  We greatly appreciate the support of all contributors to the benefit, including those who bought tickets, donated works of art, and volunteered their time. Thank you to our neighbors at Pierogi Gallery for hosting us this year–we were thrilled to hold our event in Brooklyn!  Thanks also to our sponsors: Fine Art Services + Transport, Uber, Artforum, ARTnews, Gallery Guide, and Wagmag.  Last but not least, thank you to Cowgirl for many years of incredible support, providing delicious refreshments for our benefit.

Huge thanks to the almost 160 artists–half of whom were invited directly from NURTUREart’s registry–who generously donated amazing works of art.  Support to artists is at the core of NURTUREart’s mission, and we are honored to have their gracious support as well.  All the included works can still be viewed online here.

Finally, a special thank you to all our hard-working event volunteers!  We couldn’t do it without you.
