From #Artistsforhumans to Glitter Pita
Why we love the art and soul of Hannah Beerman
Art Stuff 21 Sep 2020

In March, Hannah Beerman launched Artists for Humans, an Instagram initiative that sees artists give away artworks in exchange for donating money to various relief causes.

“I didn’t have access to a lot of things, but I do have access to my relationships and my friends”. The goal was modest, the artist told Artnet. “If somebody had asked me how much I was hoping to raise, I would have said maybe $400 or $500”.



New artworks are posted to the Instagram account on a daily base, the values of which are determined by the artists and revealed to donors directly. After the donor provides a receipt for a donation made to a specified charity, Beerman connects them with the artist selected to arrange next steps of shipping.

Donations range from $100 to $5,000, with most artworks handed over for below their market value, she says.



To date, the project has raised over $150,000 for charity.

“The point of the project is for everyone to feel good, to connect with each other, to connect to the city,” Beerman says.

Just last week Beerman also opened her own solo show “Delicate Rubbernecking,” at Kapp Kapp NYC and we cannot wait to check it out.
