Groundswell’s Art Bash Benefit is an annual celebration of local change agents and art activism. Benefit honorees include artists, community activists and local heroes who have committed their life’s work to social justice and radical change. The event features an art auction with artwork from well-known and up-and-coming artists.
Through art sales, company sponsorships, event tickets and generous donations, Groundswell raises critical funds to support teaching artist and youth stipends, program materials and more.
Our 2018 benefit honored New York City Council Member Carlos Menchaca, the arts advocacy initiative Stand For the Arts, the community gardeners of Ingersoll Garden of Eden and the founding members of art collective TATS Cru. The auction featured over 60 pieces curated by our inaugural curation committee and included work from TATS Cru, Guerrilla Girls and many others.
Stayed tuned! This year’s Art Bash Benefit takes place October 2019.
