Detroit-based art gallery Library Street Collective has teamed up with Standby bar & restaurant, Forgotten Harvest, and the Downtown Boxing Gym on a food and art initiative. The collaborators will provide free dinners alongside a limited edition coloring book with sketches designed by renowned artists to kids in need during the coronavirus pandemic. This collaborative effort was realized after restaurants and schools closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“This initiative will provide food to kids most in need in our community while using art as a catalyst to inspire and empower,” said Anthony Curis, co-founder of Library Street Collective and partner in Standby, in a statement. “At the same time, it enables our dedicated staff at Standby – as well as the team members of our partner establishments, Deluxx Fluxx and the Skip – to continue working during this turbulent time and forced closure.”

All of the meals will arrive with a copy of the WE ALL RISE a coloring sketchbook featuring drawings from Shephard Fairey, Virgil Abloh, Tiff Massey, KAWS, Charles McGee, Nick Cave, Allie McGhee, McArthur Binion, and many more.

Get a closer look at the WE ALL RISE coloring sketchbook in the slideshow above and visit the Library Street Collective’s website to learn more about the initiative.

Elsewhere in art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art is planning for a $100 million USD revenue loss due to the health crisis.

Facing the current health crisis, our thoughts have quickly turned to the people in our community who are most affected. With widespread school closures, and many parents out of work for the foreseeable future, the foundation that many students have come to rely on for a daily meal is at severe risk. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #LibraryStreetCollective – with the generous support of @StandbyDetroit – will be providing free dinners and unique sketchbooks to Detroit Public Schools students in need beginning March 23rd. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ We believe that art can provide inspiration in difficult times, and in hearing about this initiative many artists have offered their creativity to the cause. Students will receive a limited edition of “WE ALL RISE,” a new sketchbook that is filled with works by #VirgilAbloh, #NinaChanelAbney, #DougAitken, #DanielArsham, #McArthurBinion, #AmoakoBoafo, #NickCave, #Dabls, #TorkwaseDyson, #ConradEgyir, #ShepardFairey, #SamFriedman, #BeverlyFishman, #FriendsWithYou, #Haroshi, #CaroleHarris, #KAWS, #EddieMartinez, #TiffMassey, #CharlesMcGee, #AllieMcGhee, #SimphiweNdzube, #JordanNickel, #JoséParlá, #JasonREVOK, #JuliaWachtel, #AustynWeiner, #WendyWhite, and #TyrrellWinston. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ DPSCD students will have the opportunity to color within and alongside the work of groundbreaking artists as well as creating their own artwork within the sketchbook. “This initiative will provide food to kids most in need in our community while using art as a catalyst to inspire and empower.” – @anthonycuris⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Food will be prepared and distributed through the support of Detroit-based non-profits @ForgottenHarvest and The Downtown Boxing Gym.
