Artist Plate Project


Thanks to your support and the participation of so many wonderful artists and galleries, our Artist Plate Project was a tremendous success, raising $1.5 million to provide food, crisis services, PPE, housing, and other critical aid to thousands of homeless and at-risk New Yorkers.

In lieu of our 26th annual ARTWALK NY event in 2020, which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Coalition for the Homeless created Artist Plate Project to support our lifesaving work. The Coalition is honored to have worked with 50 world-renowned artists to create beautiful limited-edition dinner plates. The plates were produced by Prospect and available for purchase on Artware Editions from November 16 through December 31, 2020.

The innovative project was featured in the New York Times, T Magazine, Town and Country Magazine, and Architectural Digest, among other publications. Thirty-five galleries and individuals generously sponsored the project to help us cover the costs, and we sold more than 8,000 plates!

The sale of just one plate can feed 75 homeless and hungry New Yorkers.

Thank you to the artists, galleries, sponsors, and all of you who supported the Artist Plate Project! You truly saved lives.
