The New Art Dealers Alliance announced today that half of the proceeds from ticket sales to its 2017 New York fair will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union, to help with the recent bump in ACLU’s workload. The remaining 50 percent will be used to support the NADA x Exhibitionary International Gallery Prize, which was awarded this year to Galería Agustina Ferreyra in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
In a statement, NADA’s executive director, Heather Hubbs, described NADA as “a diverse community,” saying that “the fair is a reflection of that. We depend on and admire the talents of artists and gallerists the world over, regardless of nationality, religion, sexuality, or gender, and no organization works harder to protect the rights of all than the ACLU.”
A ticket for the whole weekend is $40, and it’s $20 for a single-day pass. Supporting art and fundamental human rights at the same time? Priceless. You can purchase tickets here.
