UFA® Artists and friends paint helmets for the Aidan Jack Seeger Foundation. Bid on yours now!

UFA® founders Jason Mitchell and Adam Suerte were invited worth a few other friends (Keo, Angry Eel, Sara Antoinette Martin and others)  and a bunch of other great artists to paint helmets currently being auctioned off to raise funds for the Aidan Jack Seeger Foundation. The Helmets are being shown at Harley Davidson NYC until 4/8, then will move to Indian Larry Motrocycles in Brooklyn from 4/9-4/16. The Auction is currently happening on Ebay, where a link to any helmet will get you to the rest. All proceeds are going to families living with ALD ( a deadly genetic disease that affects 1 in 17,000 people. As it is an X-linked genetic disease, it most severely affects boys and men, you can read more about it here) .. All helmets are on display at Harley Davidson NYC from 3/26-4/8 and then at Indian Larry Motorcycles in Bklyn from 4/9-4/16. Even if you don't bid on a helmet, please donate to a most righteous charity. Thanks for all your support!

2nd grade class at P.S 15 exhibits their "Bearology" project.

The whole 2nd grade of Red Hook's P.S.15 recently did a project researching bears called "Bearology" which they showed in the gallery. They researched bears, wrote informational booklets, created a 'Great Hall of Bears' in their school, and painted watercolors showing bears in their habitat. The watercere exhibited at urban Folk Art Gallery for 2 weeks, and the students got to come see their w displayed in a gallery setting. While researching, the bears they realized they ere an endangered species, so they left a donation jar and raised close to $100 to support the endangered animals! The work was awesome and received very well from people who knew the work was here and people just walking by alike. Great job, guys!

Donation Jar, thanks to all who donated to the bears!
