There was a great energy throughout these events. Re:Form School brought together a very interesting group of New Yorkers for a great cause. The art was priced at extremely accessible prices so I’m pretty certain most of the work sold.
From all the submissions, only 5 artists were chosen to exhibit their work.
The panel of judges included:
Russell Simmons – Def Jam Records
Shepard Fairey – Artist
Rosario Dawson – Actress
Davis Guggenheim – Director of “Waiting for Superman”
Ann Miller – Director of the Society of Illustrators
Wendy Kopp – Founder – Teach for America
Ivan Shaw – Photo Director – Vogue from all the submissions to exhibit their work
