Celebrating Immigrant Heritage Month

Celebrating Immigrant Heritage Month

June 2016 marks the third annual Immigrant Heritage Month, and we celebrated the best way we know how - with an Art Show! Along with artists from the New York Foundation For The Arts, FWD.US., and the Anti-Defamation League, we showcased art from our We Were Strangers Too campaign at Governor Cuomo's Office of New Americans in New York City.

 

Just a few miles from Ellis Island, in the office where new arrivals to America today come for assistance finding new jobs in their new home country, we were honored to show off such moving work from our community of artists. 

 

See the full collection of We Were Strangers Too artwork, contribute your own, or purchase prints to support the artists & ADL, here.

What. A. Year. 2020 was not by a long shot anything close to what we'd expected, but Team CAN weathered the storm and stuck to our mission of helping artists and good causes, who as it turned out, needed our help more than ever. In the spirit of staying positive and hopeful as we (finally!) round the corner to 2021, we wanted to share some of our silver linings and proud accomplishments from 2020 with you. (We put them in chronological order because we thought at least one thing in this crazy year should make sense.) We hope you enjoy our post and that you and yours have a very safe and happy holiday season and new year! ❤️
