Recap: FutureArt 2015 Presented by Bai

Last week, Lawrence Blake Ventures, our firm's probono division, successfully produced FutureArt 2015 Presented by Bai, a special event asking a group of New York City's rising artists to step outside of their comfort zone, by collaborating with fellow artists to create an interactive, emotional work of art, pulling together from unlimited possibilities to express their art including music, dance, spoken word, film, painting, and other forms of fine art. The event was held at one of New York's most popular nightclubs 1 OAK to raise the awareness of the importance of arts education for NYC's youth, via our nonprofit partner, Bridging Education & Art Together.

We'd like to take this time to thank everyone who helped to make this event as special as it was, including participating artists Erica Lee, Jae Kyo Han, Chesney Snow, WHY, Mike Supreme, Adam Matta, and students apart of Bridging Education & Art’s BEAT Rhymers program.

A special thank you goes to our sponsors and partners, including Bai Beverages1 OAK NYCSkillshareUberKrave JerkyHost CommitteeFlavorpillFForward, andBlue Apron.
