Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition is a non-profit 501(c)3, tax-exempt charitable organization. Any contribution you can make will help fund our public art exhibitions, music performances and other events. Your support for the arts is greatly appreciated!
WHY SUPPORT BWAC?
Here are just a few great reasons to donate to BWAC:
• BWAC is a beacon for the arts
At a time when arts and culture organizations are being threatened by a lack of funding, BWAC continues to make a great diversity of artwork available to the community in a wonderful and distinctive Civil-war era venue.
• We give artists a venue
Every year, BWAC provides hundreds of artists with a magnificent location to exhibit and sell their work. It can be very difficult for artists to find a space in which to exhibit their creations. BWAC gives them the opportunity to do so in front of a large audience of more than 15,000 visitors each year.
• Red Hook matters to us
The stream of visitors and attention to Red Hook, Brooklyn, during our shows helps boost the area's image and economy, contributing to the rebirth of this formerly decaying and blighted neighborhood.
• BWAC art is affordable
Much of our artwork is very affordable! Some of our guests have purchased their first piece of original artwork at our shows in order to beautify their homes and offices.
• Your gift has enormous impact
Most of our revenue is generated through artwork sales, artist membership fees, door and food donations. Your donation will help us continue our work at a time when government and foundation budgets are under tremendous stress.
