Art Bash 2019 Igniting the Radical Imagination

Artivism Brunch, Art Auction & Dance Party
Art Bash

On Sunday, October 21, 2018 Groundswell will host its annual benefit entitled Art Bash 2019 “Igniting the Radical Imagination” Artivism Brunch, Art Auction & Dance Party to celebrate 22 years of building community and activism through the mural creation process.   This year’s event will be held at The William Vale Hotel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The afternoon will feature a family-style brunch and award ceremony celebrating change agents who have committed their life’s work to the idea of the radical imagination as well as a curated art auction with 50 pieces of art celebrating the benefit’s theme. We are honored to have a special performance by Black Women Artist For Black Lives Matter and music by DJ Daigoro.

This year’s benefit will honor NYC Council Member Carlos Menchaca, Ingersoll Garden of Eden Gardeners, Stand for the Arts Initiative, and Tats Cru.  Each of the 2019 honorees has made a unique contribution to Groundswell and the community it serves over the organization's 20-year history, furthering its work to bring together artists, youth, and community organizations to create public art, toward a more just and equitable world.

This year's Groundswell Art Bash 2019 is proudly supported by Cumberland Packing, Charter Communications, Davis, Polk & Wardwell, Ackler Management, Adco Foundation, Bronx Brewery, and The William Vale Hotel.

“Without new visions, we don’t know what to build, only what to knock down. We not only end up confused, rudderless, and cynical, but we forget that making a revolution is not a series of clever maneuvers and tactics, but a process that can and must transform us”
