Bring Art Back is about Justice.
We can't imagine a world without visual or performing arts, music or film, or any expression at all-- and neither can you. Yet we sentence a quarter of a million of our most vulnerable New Yorkers to that kind of artless existence everyday.

419 public schools in NYC’s lowest income neighborhoods lack art teachers of any kind. 

With your help, this injustice can be fully eradicated within three years.
There are three ways you can help us Bring Art Back:

Your investment will fund arts education and mentoring in public schools.

 Buy/ wear/ use Bring Art Back merchandise, and represent the message.

Be an Ambassador by sharing our story/ vision/ statistics with your sphere of influence.

Art empowers us to create lives worth living.
Art education restores the power of choice. Every student is an artist because every student must create a life.

Kindergarten students imagine a world without art, and they don’t like it either!


By supporting Bring Art Back, you are creating hope and opportunity through arts and mentoring in public schools.

When you wear, give, or use our #BringArtBack merchandise, you become an ambassador of the movement. Proceeds from each purchase goes directly towards supporting the arts in schools.
