As New York begins to slowly recover from Hurricane Sandy, we’re seeing the city’s best side — people coming together to rebuild, volunteering, and donating their time to help those devastated by the floods, power outage, and destruction. The Occupy Sandy group has been making tremendous efforts in hurricane relief, and the art community is pitching in as well. Many artists are donating part and sometimes all of their sales from prints and t-shirts to relief groups. There are DIY functions organized by the affected galleries and organizations. It’s going to take much more time to recover, but thankfully, there’s something you can do right now, while simultaneously acquiring some arty items.
These “I Still Love NY” Sandy relief benefit t-shirts from Sebastian Errazuriz are hand-dipped in blue. Also available in blacked-out Manhattan.
