Since 1996, Groundswell has created over 500 works of public art throughout New York City. Each year we engage with nearly 800 youth, 50 community organizations, and 40 artists to create approximately 70 large-scale works of public art that explore critical social justice issues confronting our communities and our society at large. 

Art Bash, Groundswell’s annual benefit and art auction will be a celebration of 24 years of building community and activism through the mural creation process. Art Bash works to raise the necessary funds to curate these programs for our key stakeholders: youth, community members and artists. Besides offering a unique opportunity to purchase incredible artwork, the Art Bash provides critical funding for our operations, programming, and Summer Leadership Institute scholarships.
