We are pleased to announce Young New York: A Silent Art Auction & Fundraiser. This one night event will benefit Young New York (YNY), an art focused social justice program working with 16 and 17 year olds who, legally classified as adults, have been thrown into New York State’s adult criminal justice system.
With space provided by White Box, food provided by Maimonide of Brooklyn, and drinks provided by Bomb Lager, the funds from the silent auction will help build the first stage of the program - a series of creative workshops with fifteen young New Yorkers. The young New Yorkers will work closely with a team of successful artists, designers, teachers and social workers to responsibly and creatively develop their message around their own experiences with, and hopes for, the treatment of youth in the criminal justice system.
YNY will auction and exhibit the works of emerging and established international artists whose work touches on the realm of the social in urban space, thereby creating a dialogue with the work being developed in the YNY workshops.
Young New York is supported by the Goodman Fellowship at Columbia University and Brooklyn Defender Services.

When & Where
Young New York
Young New York:
Being Seen Heard and Known
Legally classified as adults in New York State, 16 and 17 year olds are thrown into the adult criminal justice system if arrested. Young New York (YNY) is an art focused social justice project that raises awareness about this issue and the need for positive and constructive alternatives to this school to prison pipeline.
YNY will give 15 of these young New Yorkers the opportunity to engage in a series of creative workshops that will give voice to their experiences and hopes for the treatment of youth in the criminal justice system. The group will work closely with a team of successful artists, designers and teachers in responsibly developing their own message, and the medium to express it in a creative and powerful way.
The message and medium created in these workshops will culminate in the design of a compelling temporary public artwork. Once realized this public artwork will bring the voice of the young New Yorkers to a largely unaware audience, promoting a broader conversation about the treatment of 16 and 17 year olds in the criminal justice system.
Empowering these young New Yorkers will broaden their view of the criminal justice system beyond their negative experience, and nurture a better understanding of the important role it plays in serving the community. It will also give them the opportunity to open a dialogue around this issue.
YNY works in collaboration with other New York based not for profit organizations including Brooklyn Defender Services and the Paint Straight program. Our team includes a diverse and talented array of artists, lawyers, architects, social workers and more. Check out the Team page on our website for more information about us.
