Sugarlift and NYC Artists Took Over the 2nd Avenue Subway and Raised over $2,000 for Young New Yorkers!
Those riding the Q Line in NYC on Saturday August 25th may have happened upon an interesting sight. Between 3:00-4:30pm, over 50 artists took their sketchbooks and packed into the subway cars at Union Square station, rode up to 96th street, and then on to Prince Street and a nearby popup gallery. There, artists exhibited the sketches they made, to sell for the price of a 30-day metrocard.
The event raised over $2,000 for the Young New Yorkers’ Art-Not-Jail program. Among the artists were two graduates of the Young New Yorkers!
