Young New Yorkers Silent Art Auction

Young New Yorkers Silent Art Auction ft. Shepard Fairey, Swoon, Cost, Chino, and More

New York is one of the few states that tries 16- and 17-year-olds as adults, leaving those convicted with a criminal record that permanently affects their future. Young New Yorkers is a Brooklyn-based nonprofit organization that provides these teenagers with an opportunity for a fresh start through arts-based diversion programs, which allow participants’ cases to be sealed upon completion.

Join us this Wednesday, April 1, for the Young New Yorkers Silent Art Auction at the Joseph Gross Gallery. Curated by Nami Berglund, LNY, Daniel Weintrop, Keith Markel, and Rachel Barnard, the auction will feature work from Shepard Fairey, Steven Holl, Dan Witz, Swoon, Case Maclaim, Amy Sol, Miss Van, Cost, Axel Void, David Hockney, and many more. The proceeds from the auction will support Young New Yorkers and its diversion programs.

“From the beginning our Diversion Programs have been supported by local street artists, many of whom were arrested for graffiti in their youth before they became celebrated artists,” says Rachel Barnard, YNY Executive Director. “Shepard Fairey, Swoon, ESPO, Chino, ASVP, Gilf!, and many more have all donated artworks to support our city’s justice-involved teenagers.”

Tickets for the event are available here. Check out the official details for the event below and the artwork up for auction here.
