If you were in New York City last night – maybe you attended the Pop-Up Exhibit in Chelsea of new prints curated by Brooklyn Street Art. Beats and refreshments were provided at the opening reception – with proceeds from the sale going to support the cultural and education programs of the Heliotrope Foundation in North Braddock, PA and Haiti.
