Art is New York | New York Is Art

Tribeca Festival, presented by AT&T, and CHANEL today announced Art is New York | New York Is Art, an art project celebrating 20-years of the Tribeca Festival Art Awards and the Festival’s tradition of artists supporting other artists. Tribeca and CHANEL convened over 60 past and present Art Award contributors to create an original sketch inspired by the inseparable relationship between art and New York, the city’s rebirth, and the healing power of art.

Art is New York | New York is Art illustrates the depth of love and loyalty amongst the artists for their stomping ground. They remind us that New York City—its color, its texture and its sound—is a work in itself that belongs to us all. The following artists contributed Jorge Prado, Laurie Simmons, John Torreano, David Salle, Ella Kruglyanskaya, Elizabeth Colomba and many more.

In addition to the artwork for Art is New York | New York is Art, Tribeca and CHANEL released a short film which includes the pioneering voices of Julian Schnabel, Donna Ferrato, and Chuck D examining the power of art and the resilience of the city. These three compelling artists discuss their respective purposes, work and devotion to New York City.
