The New York Academy of Art is presenting their latest “Artists for Artists” Benefit Auction in honor of genre-defying painter, Peter Saul. This year’s auction takes place on December 14th at Sotheby’s New York on the Upper East Side and will raise funds for emerging artists to study at the New York Academy of Art. The auction features a variety of artwork from Academy students, alumni, faculty, and friends.
As the name suggests, “Artists for Artists” celebrates artists who have donated their work to help provide a leg-up to those up-and-coming and to support the next generation of artistic talent. Founded in 1982 by artists, scholars, and patrons of the arts, including Andy Warhol, The New York Academy of Art fosters a resurgence in the training of figurative and representational art. The Academy has since developed into a non-profit cultural institution housing the nation’s first graduate school of figurative art.
