KAWS is teaming up with the non-profit organization Free Arts NYC to release a series of limited prints. All proceeds from the sale will go towards the charity that is currently raising money for supplies, activity kits, and virtual mentorship for underprivileged children in crowded shelters.
Each print (10.5 x 8 inches wide) arrives signed and numbered in an edition of 25 including five artist proofs. One of the highlighted pieces features a Snoopy silhouette complete with a vivid composition of colorful lines in an abstract pattern. The editions are available for $1,200 USD apiece with shipping included.
For those who are interested in purchasing a print, KAWS outlined the instructions in an Instagram caption below:
To request purchase, e-mail PRINTS@KAWS.COM with FREEARTSNYC in the subject line and include your full name, shipping address, and phone number. 25 people will be selected to purchase the print and will be contacted with payment instructions.
If you are interested in being placed in line to buy a print from the soon-to-be-announced editions for other charities, please mention that in your e-mail.
Shipping will commence once shelter-in-place orders have been lifted in New York City.
