In addition to the daily yoga practice I’ve taken up in the new year, I’m really excited about a new project at CERF+ that ties in nicely with making resolutions. Thanks to a partnership with Wellness for Makers, we’re launching educational videos and resources to help artists remain healthy in their studio practice.
Thanks to the 500 artists, suppliers, collectors, gallery owners, and more who made end-of-year gifts to CERF+, raising over $130,000! Our community of donors ensure that we hit 2018 running and at- the-ready to help artists at any stage of their career. Thank you so...

I spent 110 days without electrical power and 45 days without water. Today, many people still have neither.”
