Put some heART in your Holidays

Please RSVP to deckthewalls@nyaa.edu

A note from Academy President David Kratz:

Dear Friends,

Thanks to all of you who donated art to "Deck the Walls!" It's thrilling to see such a wonderful show spring up almost spontaneously from everybody’s small works.

It’s such a great event. In addition to thanking all our supporters, "Deck the Walls" serves another purpose. It creates a level playing field that, because of the way it’s organized, encourages people to start collecting. Last year, many guests told me that they were normally too intimidated or indecisive to buy art but “Deck the Walls” made it so fun and easy that they bought more than one. Some literally left with armfuls!

Anything we can do to encourage people to start collecting, raises our own profile and supports the artists in our community. The fact that we also make it so much fun is a pretty nifty trick. But what else would you expect of a creative community like ours? In the spirit of the season, it’s a gift to all of us.

With warm holiday wishes,

    I didn't mention it in the post, but I went home with three items, too!
