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.
