We are all for artists.
Sugarlift started as an art gallery in Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighborhood in 2014. Our mission has been consistent: to help more artists create sustainable careers by connecting them with a larger audience of collectors.
Over the years, our gallery evolved. We embraced technology. We pursued new ways for people to engage with and collect artwork. We are unafraid to change the status quo as long as it benefits artists and dignifies their work.
A few of our favorite moments along the way:
That time we flew a drone over our rooftop party during Bushwick Open Studios. The flash-mob of 300+ artists to #DrawTheHighline. The first and second time we hosted Mother & Child and donated $23,000+ to family legal defense funds. That time we were invited by TED to show off our technology at their annual conference. How about our Chelsea exhibition, ME, in partnership with Juxtapoz?
We have had the opportunity to work with some of the most incredible artists alive. We are constantly in awe of their potential to create. At the same time, we have met so many thoughtful, passionate collectors who empower these artists to make their work.
Despite all we have accomplished so far, we know that there is still a lot to do. The art world is changing very rapidly and we believe that there is enormous potential for good. We encourage artists to keep an open mind, work hard, create what they want to create and keep going. Collectors, we encourage you to keep supporting artists. Buy what you love and make sure that artists are being fairly compensated.
Together we will change the art world for the better!
