Fingerpaint Art Show

The first event from Fingerpaint will be Wednesday May 28th from 7pm -

It will feature work from 25 emerging photographers and artists, as
well a selection of specially donated pieces. Items will be for sale
through a silent auction with all proceeds going to benefit Brad
Pitt's Make it Right Foundation for the restoration of the 9th Ward
district in New Orleans.

Held at the historic former Dia Gallery's 10,000 sq foot space on West
22nd street, the event will be an amazing showcase of emerging talent
from across America for a great cause.

Fingerpaint seeks to facilitate the exposure of talented young
artists, through ad hoc art events at high-end galleries in New York
City. Each show is followed by a silent auction, from which all
proceeds go towards the Make It Right Foundation, building green
affordable housing for victims of Hurricane Katrina. The title
'Fingerpaint' evokes the do-it-yourself mentality often associated
with youth culture, the childish impertinence of us 'sneaking in' to
these high-end galleries, and the firm belief that our passions can be
harnessed to benefit the lives of future generations.
