Our cover artist Swoon (issue #25), recently started a new non-profit organization, the Heliotrope Foundation, dedicated to using art to create lasting social change. These days she joined forces with Dean Collection, for an exclusive event that will be opened on 13th of May in NYC @ 287 Gallery (287 Tenth Ave, NYC).
The Road By Walking is a gallery show of Swoon’s prints, drawings and scale models, based on her community projects in Haiti, New Orleans and Braddock, PA. Through her projects Swoon and her team are using art to make lasting social change in communities recovering from natural disasters and other urgent social crises. This show will be unique opportunity to have a look behind-the-scenes of these unique projects, showing never before shown sketches, architectural models and signature portrait prints.
