New York, NY— Fountain Art Fair is pleased to announce its role as presenting sponsor for ProjectArt’s Walk the Talk, a call-to-action to build awareness about the deteriorating funding for arts education affecting youth, particularly in New York City public schools. At 10am on September 29, participants will meet at Asya Geisberg Gallery and then walk the iconic High Line Park for a pilgrimage through Chelsea, New York’s arts district, in an effort to engage New Yorkers to make arts education a priority in children’s educations and lives.
“As always, we are interested in pushing boundaries and breaking new ground in the name of art. We are proud to be a presenting sponsor for Walk the Talk, the city’s first ever walk for arts education.” – Rachel Esterday, Producer at Fountain Art Fair.
ProjectArt is an after-school, weekends and summer visual arts education program for children and youth. It is an invitation to the creative youth of New York to explore art in a bold and unique way. Their distinctive Project approach is based on actualizing student’s artistic visions, presenting their work in highly visible spaces where the works are on sale and channeling 100% of the proceeds directly to the students themselves.
“ProjectArt finds a natural partner in Fountain Art Fair, as we are both dedicated to nurturing emerging artists and believe in the power of art to spark positive change.” – Adarsh Alphons, Director of ProjectArt

About Fountain Art Fair:
Fountain Art Fair is an exhibition of avant-garde artwork founded to leverage support for smaller independent galleries to gain access to larger collectors and critics. In addition to cutting-edge art, visitors to the fair can enjoy signature elements such as on-site performance art, a major street art installation, and musical performances that Fountain has become known for integrating into the art fair experience. From presenting just 3 local exhibitors at its first fair in 2006, Fountain has grown to represent over 60 international exhibitors at its most recent New York 2012 edition.
“The artists displaying their multimedia wares here are true avant-garde upstarts.” —NBC New York
