The effects of Hurricane Sandy are still being felt across the east coast within flooded communities and at some of the nation's most iconic boardwalks. Wyatt Neumann, creative director at Decon, along with fellow artists Marilyn Rondon, Dave Ortiz, Tim Strazza, Ulli Barta have decided to help, with the launch of "Bring Back the Boardwalks," an organization dedicated to providing funds and relief to victims of the storm in the Rockaway Beach and Coney Island areas.
This Saturday, "Bring Back the Boardwalks" is hosting a silent art auction & fundraiser sponsored by artists, designers, craftsmen and celebrities. Works have been donated from artists such as Faile, Michael Halsbald, Tom Sachs and Kenzo, and treats will be available from Babycakes NYC. All proceeds from this event will directly benefit individuals suffering from the loss of their homes and belongings due to the storm. Check out some of the other art to be auctioned on the right.
Details of the auction are as follows:
Saturday, November 17th
2pm - 9pm (auction closes at 8pm)
76 Wooster St. 2nd Floor
New York, NY 10012
