Going forward, The Art Show will no longer take place in February. With the 2021 edition of the fair, we are excited to establish these new November dates on the fair calendar and further strengthen the fair’s position as a favorite of collectors and galleries alike. The Art Show has raised over $33 million for Henry Street through more than three decades of partnership between the Settlement and the Art Dealers Association of America.
Ticket sales for The Art Show are Henry Street’s largest source of unrestricted funds. With the permanent move of the annual February show, there is a gap this year in critical funds for Henry Street’s essential programs just when we need them most to support our extensive pandemic response. In other words, we need your support now more than ever. To sustain this vital work, our Board of Directors is matching every gift* to cover the loss. Your contribution today will have double the impact on vulnerable New Yorkers in this crisis.

These past months at the Settlement have been a time of incredible need and inspiring action. When the pandemic hit, we immediately created new food pantries; expanded delivered meals to homebound seniors and families in our homeless shelters; launched the Henry Street Helpline; and modified employment, education, arts, and health and wellness programs to serve our most vulnerable children and families. As we look to the future, we know that the communities Henry Street serves will need us to survive, recover, and rebuild.

We are so grateful for our past supporters of The Art Show and we thank you for all you do for Henry Street.
