Hello,

The Art from the Epicenter art auction is now open for bidding on Instagram. Here is our Instagram page. The auction ends on June 10 at 9 pm EST. Over 70+ artists have donated work, and minimum bids range from $20 to $100.


How it works:

Bidders place bids via the comments on the post they like. After June 10, winning bidders make a direct donation to one of three organizations helping our community. Once we have proof of the donation, we will instruct the artists to ship the work.


The three organizations are:

Covid Care Neighbor Network. is a mutual aid group covering Jackson Heights, East Elmhurst and Woodside.



Make the Road New York builds the power of immigrant and working class communities to achieve dignity and justice. It has set up a COVID-19 Emergency Response fund to provide critical support to our communities.



Meals for Elmhurst hospital is purchasing large quantities of meals from local restaurants to feed the staff of Elmhurst hospital.



We are grateful to 70+ local artists who have donated work. They include: Accra Shepp, Adam Nadel, Alessandra Exposito, Ali Lasky, ANIOTUS, Ann Cofta, Ann Romero de Cordoba, Anne Heffernan, Barbara Westermann, Carla Lobmier, Cecilia Lim, Christopher Johnson, Colette Robbins, Daniel Mantilla, David Stock, Deborah Wasserman, Donna Levinstone, Donnelly Marks, Eleen Lin, Elizabeth Sturges-Llerena, Ellen Sturm Niz, Emily Noelle Lambert, Erin Treacy, Eung Ho Park, Evie McKenna, Hazel Hankin, Helen Quinn, Ivana Larrosa, Jean Foos, Jean-Marie Casbarian, Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao, Jennifer Dubnau, Jennifer Williams, Jesse Lambert, Jessica Bruah, John Bjerklie, Juan Hinojosa, Justin Valdes, Karen Fitzgerald, Karl Mckoy, KC Trommer, Kisha Bari, Kristine Marx, Kyung-jin Kim, Lainie Newman-Rodriguez, Lillian Przedecki Cohen, Linda Ganjian, LoMo, Margaret Cogswell, Maria Liebana, Marina Kappos, Mary Pinto, Mary Valverde, Micah Ganske, Michael Lee, Ming-Jer Kuo, MiYoung Sohn, Nandita Raman, Nitin Mukul, Norma Markley, Paul Krause, Pierre Obando, Poogy Bjerklie, Priscilla Stadler, Ron Callahan, Sharon Servilio, Sonya Gropman, Stephanie Beck, Suran Song, Will Kaplan, and more.

This is a great initiative! Is there any way for people to view or bid on work who do not have Instagram accounts? Those of us without accounts can only view a limited number of works before asked to join Instagram.

Hi Matt

Unfortunately you would need an IG account to bid. You can set up a temporary account and then ditch it after the auction is over. Some people we know are doing that.

thank you!
