"Cooties is hosting a group art show to launch our second print issue, “Ladies of Change” at Chinatown Soup Gallery in Lower Manhattan on July 21st from 6PM-10PM. All profits from merch and artwork will directly support homeless women and children in New York City.
Chinatown Soup is a non for profit space, that does not take any percentage of sales. Therefore, All profits from this event will benefit WIN. For over 30 years WIN has provided New York City’s homeless women and children with housing and other services to allow them to rebuild their lives. In recent years, homelessness in New York City has reached the highest levels since the Great Depression. In March 2018, there were 62,974 homeless, including 15,393 homeless families with 23,110 homeless children. This is an urgent issue that is worsening over time due to the lack of affordable housing in NYC, hence the decision for the platform to benefit WIN.
Come enjoy incredible art by some truly incredible ladies! There will be food and drinks, merchandise for sale and music! And all for a great cause!!!"
A group of 10 artists will be live painting in an event with all works up for live auction. Artists to win best work via Instagram vote will win a month of full studio access, so come out and support your local Con Artist!
