29x29 Benefit Portfolio

I'm honored to have one of my images from the series Star Maps included in a new portfolio being sold to benefit The Center for Arts Education - a wonderful non-profit that helps foster arts educations in NYC public schools.The portfolio is the work of both Chris Fisher and Hilary Schaffner, who conceived of the idea and help bring it to fruition. Seth Lambert has also worked closely with them and helped oversee the printing and production of the portfolio.

Some of the artists (and former classmates at SVA) include Alison Brady, Matthew Pillsbury, Amy Stein, Suellen Parker, Kate Cunningham, Jeff Chien-Hsiang Liao (whose image is above), Yamani Nayer, Sarina Finkelstein, Chris Fisher, Molly Landreth, Shai Kramer, Alix Smith, Keren Moscovitch, Shen Wei and more. For more information about the artists and images, look here.

Each portfolio comes with twenty-nine 13x19 inkjet prints, one from each artist, and a short text by Vince Aletti. There is also a upcoming show at Bruce Silverstein's project space on April 19-21th, where all the images and portfolio will be on view and for sale.
