We are so excited to once again bring together artists, art lovers, and other compassionate New Yorkers for the first time since 2019 to celebrate the profound impact of the arts community on our society and support the vital work of the Coalition for the Homeless.

This is a critical time in New York, as post-pandemic economic conditions have been pushing more and more people out of their homes at the same time that tens of thousands of asylum seekers and other new arrivals have come to our city desperate for help. We’re now in a true humanitarian crisis, with more than 110,000 people – mostly families – bedding down in emergency shelters each night.

The Coalition for the Homeless provides emergency food and clothing, eviction prevention, crisis services, permanent housing, job training and special programs for kids to over 3,500 people a day. Since 1981, we have given more than one million homeless New Yorkers a way off the streets.

Jenny Holzer – Artist Honoree
For more than forty years, Jenny Holzer has presented her astringent ideas, arguments, and sorrows in public places and international exhibitions, including the Venice Biennale, the Guggenheim Museums in New York and Bilbao, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Louvre Abu Dhabi. Her medium, whether a T-shirt, plaque, or LED sign, is writing, and the public dimension is integral to her work. Starting in the 1970s with her New York City street posters and continuing through her recent light projections on landscape and architecture, her practice has rivaled ignorance and violence with humor, kindness, and courage. Holzer received the Leone d’Oro at the Venice Biennale in 1990, the World Economic Forum’s Crystal Award in 1996, and the US State Department’s International Medal of Arts in 2017. She holds honorary degrees from Williams College, the Rhode Island School of Design, The New School, and Smith College. She lives and works in New York.
