The COVID-19 Artist & Photographers Deal.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the world has come to an abrupt halt affecting countless lives as well as the supply chain that keeps life and business humming along. The amount of people put out of work this past week alone or those filing for unemployment is simply mind-boggling. Our thoughts for every single one of them. 

As we keep a close eye on positive stories and watch as countless establishments reach out to help others, we are humbled. This is the true American spirit. 

With that in mind, Founder of East Village Arts, Bryan Thatcher, and New York artist Gregory de la Haba have teamed together to offer their artist-community-friends and neighbors a once-in-a-lifetime deal on the printing of their work. 

The goal is a simple one: By offering artists an opportunity to purchase a series of 10 (or more) prints entirely at costs, they can then offer their friends, family, and collectors a chance to buy their art at a discounted rate as well with the hopes of putting much-needed cash back into their cash-strapped pockets sooner rather than later. 

Keep the faith. In art we trust.
