Calling all Patrons of the Art of Body Painting ~ Human Connection Arts currently has its 2022 Spring Campaign underway, with a deadline of May 25th. This year’s campaign will support new projects like Naked Theater and the Circle of Hope, and annual events like NYC Pridefest, NYC Bodypainting Day, Live Bodypainting, and one of our favorites, the NYC Halloween Parade.
Human Connection Arts was launched in 2017, born from the days when Andy Golub, its founder, painted freely in the streets of New York City.
Now, the nonprofit ~ true to its mission of forming unique connections between artist and model during body painting ~ focuses on the vulnerabilities between models and artists, creating significant impact on artist, models and the public, as they strive to build a world where all people are accepted, regardless of race, gender, size, shape, age and even political views.
Kicking-off 2021, Human Connection Arts announced the opening of new indoor gallery and outdoor courtyard, set to open on January 18, 2021 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The new space will be located at Java Art Studios, where HCA will host free interactive events each week, including painting, poetry, music, movement, and conversations.
