On Saturday, September 7, Stick Together Gallery hosted a VIP private viewing dinner for a collection of philanthropists arriving from countries throughout Europe. Dinner ticket proceeds went to The RAW Project – a Miami-based non profit bringing top international artists to better learning environments at underfunded public schools through art.

“The goal was to premiere new work while raising enough donations to cover the cost of artist accommodation for the upcoming RAW project in Miami this Art Basel week in December,” said Audrey Sykes, owner of Stick Together. “We not only hit our target goal, but we sold a few pieces along the way.”

Among the artworks previewed to a group of about 25 collectors were Max Zorn, Kevin Ledo, Shepard Fairey, Otto Schade, and Mr. Brainwash — most of whom are artists who have already worked with The RAW Project in the past.
