The month of December is dedicated to our End-of-Year-Fundraiser to raise the last $2,000 needed to fund a project at Emory University Hospital. Yesterday marked the launch of the fundraiser and donations have already been pouring in and bringing us even closer to helping Atlanta's patients. The Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging waiting area at Emory University Hospital will be transformed by James Welling's dramatic photographs of Philip Johnson's Glass House. Be a part of this amazing project by donating today!
Help us and receive a gift in return! Donations of $25 receive an artist-signed copy of our latest coloring book, Between the Lines Vol. III, while donations reaching $100 will receive a coloring book AND a Terry Richardson autographed puzzle. For donations of $250 or more, you will obtain a signed gelatin silver print of New York taken by Life Magazine photographer, John Muller, between 1938 and 1945.

Tonight marks the opening reception of Terry Richardson's "Mom & Dad" exhibition at Half Gallery. As the title suggests, the exhibition centers on photographs of Richardson's mother and father. In the artist's words, "My parents split up when I was four. It feels good for me to have them back together again, even if it's in a gallery and only for a little while." The floor of Half Gallery is strewn with photographs of the artist from childhood, while the walls feature a video piece and images of Richardson's parents. "Mom & Dad" will be up until December 4th. Don't miss the opportunity to catch a glimpse into the private life of one of today's most celebrated photographers!
Diane recently had the opportunity to visit Marc Swanson's studio and have a sneak-peak into his forthcoming works. Swanson is no stranger to RxArt, having contributed a drawing to our Between the Lines Vol. II coloring book.
Last night we celebrated the kick off for our Pop-Up Shop! The walls of Half Gallery have been hung with original works by James Franco, Terence Koh, Will Cotton, Matthew Brannon and many more. Guests gathered to drink champagne and scoop up RxArt coloring books and puzzles at discount prices. The event marks our very first Pop-Up shop and it is off to a roaring start.
If you missed the opening, don't despair. The Pop-Up will be open all weekend with RxArt coloring books, puzzles, and t-shirts for sale at 50% off. Artworks are also for sale, so don't miss the opportunity to get a Will Cotton candy cane drawing or James Franco Polaroids to hang in your own apartment.
We're open Friday and Saturday from 10-6 and Sunday from 12-6. Stop by to see the art and indulge your children (or inner child) with puzzles and Between the Lines coloring books featuring art by major contemporary artists!
As the most recent addition to the RxArt team, I'd like use my inaugural blog post as an introduction. My name is Sarah Zabrodski, and I am a Canadian transplanted from the frozen prairies of Alberta to New York City. I crossed the border just over two years ago to attend the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU for my M.A. in Art History.
Having recently graduated, I am now working on various writing projects including the launch of my own blog. It functions as a journal of my art encounters across America, starting with my summer road trip through the South West from Spiral Jetty to Marfa, Texas. Navigating the New York art world has been a whirlwind, and I've been like the proverbial sponge soaking up new experiences at organizations as diverse as MoMA and ARTnews Magazine.
I first learned of RxArt when I stumbled upon a brief write up about the latest "Between the Lines" coloring book in an issue of New York Magazine. My secret love for coloring and not-so-secret love for contemporary art inspired me to check out the RxArt website and learn more about this organization that so deftly combined these two passions. I am now thrilled to be part of a team that is bringing art to unconventional spaces while brightening the patient experience, and I am looking forward to helping out RxArt in every capacity!
