Draftcb's art show no sleeper on the environment

By Published on .

Draftfcb New York's 33rd Street Art Show and Auction held last month raised more than $3,100 for RockRenew, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the environment, which is endorsed by music industry celebs including Debbie Harry, Art Alexakis of Everclear and Jody Porter of Fountains of Wayne. The show, held at the Milk Gallery, a popular art gallery in Chelsea, showcased more than 30 pieces of art submitted by Draftfcb employees, including top-selling piece "Yawn," submitted by Art Director John Campo. The piece, no snoozer, sold for $1,025. Draft said in an announcement that the goal of the event was "to not only inspire creativity but also spread invaluable knowledge to help fight global warming one person, one agency and one community at a time." Proceeds of the auction are going toward RockRenew's Arch Sustainable Garden and Farm Mentoring Center in Bayonne, N.J., as well as local recycling campaigns and other community-based environmental campaigns. "Every day we use our creativity to help build our clients' brands, but through events like this, we're also able to use that creativity for the greater good, while doing our small part to help save our planet," said Chris Becker, chairman-chief creative officer of Draftfcb New York, in a release.
