Young New Yorkers: A Charitable Event for a Worthy Cause
The Young New Yorkers (full version) from Dave Regos on Vimeo.
Young New Yorkers is now in it’s 2nd year and in order to celebrate and raise funds for a great cause they are holding a silent auction. The main goal of the program is to help 16 and 17 years old, who are normally prosecuted as adults in New York State, through an immersive hands on arts program. Over the course of a few weeks there are a series of workshops where the adolescents learn to express themselves through interactive art projects. The program culminates with a public art installation where local artists lend a helping hand. LNY has been working with them this year and has curated a deep line up of Street Artists for the charitable event. The silent auction began on October 3rd and can be accessed over at Paddle8. The final event is being hosted by Allegra La Viola Gallery on October 16th from 6-10pm at 179 East Broadway and Canal Street.
