HAI is Offering Art for the 99%

HAI is hosting 100 Living Rooms, an evening of Outsider Art, live music, wine and food on Saturday June 16th from 6pm-9pm at The Gallery at HAI (548 Broadway, 3rd Floor) New York, NY.

Purchase a ticket and you are guaranteed to go home with a piece of original art From HAI's Archive of Outsider Art. HAI’s Archive of Outsider Art includes thousands of paintings and drawings by individuals with mental illness who were able to find their creative voices through participating in HAI Arts Workshops.  These individuals were institutionalized for decades, and had been released into adult homes in Far Rockaway and Coney Island, where HAI Workshop Artists were introduced to them.  Of the thousands of people who participated in HAI Workshops, these twenty or so individuals became completely absorbed by drawing and painting developing remarkable bodies of work.  HAI began exhibiting their work in galleries and museums in the 1980’s, and continues to represent their work today, along with contemporary Outsider Artists.

 Art selection begins at 7pm sharp and work is selected in the order tickets are purchased.
Art Collector- A $100 ticket guarantees you will choose one of the first ten pieces of art
