I am currently raising money for Planned Parenthood via Facebook in support of reproductive freedom and access to safe, legal abortion care. The fundraiser will run through Friday, May 20th with 100% of the proceeds going to Planned Parenthood to support their healthcare programs. You can make a donation of any amount at This Link. Thank you for your support.
Update: I am excited to tell you that this fundraiser earned $1120 for Planned Parenthood! Thanks to everyone who made a donation!

In a previous life, I spent ten or so years in the world of architecture and interior design, which is where I first became acquainted with the Canstructioncompetition. Canstructioninvolves teams of design industry professionals who conceive and build amazingly creative structures made entirely from cans of food.Sponsored by an eponymous international hunger relief charity, Canstructionsources donations of millions of pounds of food for local food banks through annual events across the country. At the end of each competition, all the food is donated to a local food bank, such as NYC’s City Harvest. In 2020, the event was canceled due to Covid, but his year, the completed structures were back on public display from November 4th to 15th at the Brookfield Place mall in Battery Park City. I’m happy to report I was able to check them out in person. Let’s take a look at the inspired competition from the 2021 Canstruction NYC!
Do you miss going to art galleries? I sure do. I know that many galleries have reopened, but as a fairly enthusiastic fan who used to spend nearly every Thursday evening roaming the streets of Chelsea, the scene just feels so dead while Covid keeps us from gathering together to celebrate our shared passion for art. Art! Because of this — even though I’ve been hitting the museums pretty hard — I’ve been feeling rather art-starved over the past year, and that’s just a shame.
If you are acquainted with art of Paul McCarthy, then you’ve come to understand that McCarthy’s art is centered in taking the familiar and banal and fucking it up a little bit, because that is how he rolls. Paul McCarthy and The Skateroom is a collaboration between the artist and the organization that supports non-profit projects that empower children through Skateboarding and Art, which nobody can deny is a truly excellent cause! Here, McCarthy’s provocative and socially critical art celebrates the skateboard as a symbol of youth empowerment and freedom on a deeper level, as proceeds from sales will entirely fund the building of a skateboarding and educational center for vulnerable youth in South Africa, led by international NGO Skateistan, which builds skate parks in poor, traumatized areas of the world.
