SW4BC has been a wonderful success story for the Sylvia Rivera Law Project: in the past 8 years, over 70 organizing host committee members and more than 300 progressive, transgressive, and cutting-edge artists have generously donated hundreds of visionary works of art! This vibrant annual celebration reflects the radical spirit of SRLP, as well as the experimental energy of some of New York’s most innovative established and emerging contemporary artists. 100% of the event’s proceeds will benefit SRLP’s crucial work for gender self-determination. The event is free to the public, and will including a silent auction with affordable price points beginning at $10, featuring photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, textile pieces and mixed media installations.
