And to the dedicated and hardworking Volunteers
that made it all possible!

The New York Blade has an article about the Fair!

Limited edition posters for the New York Fair are still available!

The Foundation commissioned the artist Kirwan to create a special piece of art for our New York event. Here's an opportunity to grab a piece of history, as this poster and drawing will not be reproduced again. When they are gone, they are gone.

The artwork depicts Kirwan's impression of people on the subway heading to the art fair. His slightly off kilter -- but always on target -- viewpoint has made him a favorite with both magazine publishers and collectors.

Frame it as it is, or mat it down to the image and present it as a rare Kirwan reproduction, as it is signed by the artist..

Dimensions: 17" high by 11" wide.
$25 plus $10 shipping & handling (USA)
