Make 2017 Fluxy by joining in on our biggest event of the year.
2016 has been an year for growth and stability at Flux. We narrowly negotiated a lease extension through 2021. We started a community garden with neighborhood partners. We welcomed new managing director Maya Suess. We provided affordable space to over 40 artists, who produced just as many public events free and open to the public. Next year we will continue commission artists to create new works that are socially engaged and make New York a better place for all, while providing key resources to support the careers of emerging artists.
Supporting the Flux auction supports our mission to provide free public events, pay artists to make cutting edge art, and to provide affordable space and opportunities to emerging artists. Our event is staffed by volunteers, features donated artworks – join our legion of supporters to make Flux possible for another year!
