Join us in celebrating the Art Connects New York 2nd Annual Spring Benefit with the debut of our latest art exhibition for the True Colors Residence: New York City’s first and only permanent, supportive housing for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth with a history of homelessness.

Art Connects New York partnered with True Colors to create Art Connects New York’s first permanent exhibition of all-commissioned new artworks. Under the guidance of Harlem-based curator, Souleo, eight contemporary artists were paired with True Colors residents to create original, mixed media portraits of their community.

The Art Connects Spring Benefit will be the exclusive preview of these new works before they are permanently installed at the True Colors Residence in Harlem this summer!

NO, I cannot attend but I would like to support
Art Connects New York with a donation.


The True Colors placement is Art Connects New York’s 36th permanent curated installation of contemporary art that we have created for social service agencies–free of charge. Funds from this Spring Benefit will support the True Colors educational and outreach programs and the continuation of Art Connects’ work in the coming year.

Art Connects New York’s placements are in all five boroughs of New York City, enrich the lives of approximately 100,000 of partner agencies’ constituents each year, and reflect the commitment of over 400 New York City artists who have donated their work.

Art Connects New York’s programs are supported in part by The Art Connection and Fay Slover Fund at the Boston Foundation, public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, eMarketer, the New York Council for the Humanities, The Puffin Foundation, and numerous generous contributions from our individual donors.
