Armory Week in NYC started with the ADAA's The Art Show, the first in a series of art fairs and events that lasted for about a week, and ended yesterday. I saw an incredible amount of art in the span of a few days, and shared my favorites through Instagram Stories. The most memorable piece for me, though, is pictured here: Sarah Cain's $ninety-four.
When the Art Dealers Association of America asked me to make a dress inspired by one of the works in their benefit auction for the Henry Street Settlement, this piece caught my eye. I made a dress for Sarah Cain's exhibition at Galerie Lelong last fall, an immersive experience that included a large-scale floor painting. I was surprised to find that $ninety-four is the size of a dollar bill! There is an abundance of energy in the six-inch painting, and it made me think about the impact that even a small act of kindness can carry.
The Henry Street Settlement opens doors of opportunity for New Yorkers through social service, art, and healthcare programs, and you can make a difference by getting involved.
