119 Gallery and AstroDime Transit Authority are now initiating a new campaign. We call it AHA! (Artists Helping Artists). We are modeling it on a wonderful campaign for musicians called Sweet Relief.

We believe that artists in the United States contribute a lot to their communities. Of course they contribute to culture, but in addition, many are teachers, mentors, and community activists. They often volunteer their time in order to make their community better through their work, teaching, and activism. To that end, we are initiating occasional pop-up fundraisers to help artists who have been affected by age, sickness, and financial crisis, so that they can get back on their feet and continue their work and contribution to their communities..

Here’s our first campaign:


and our working logo. We hope you will consider our causes. They will make a lot of difference.
