BROOKLYN CUPCAKE is proud to support “Mo’No Mo’No” and ART START!

On Saturday, May 26th, the NY Character-Based Street Wear Brand, “Mo’No Mo’No, is hosting its first gallery event, “CELEBRATE LIFE THROUGH ART”, where a portion of the proceeds will benefit, ART START.

ART START has become an award-winning, nationally recognized model for using the creative arts to transform young, at-risk lives. ART START kids live in city shelters, on the streets, are involved in court cases, or surviving with parents in crisis. Through ART START’s daily creative arts workshops taking place inside some of the city’s loneliest places, at-risk youth collaborate with local teaching artists and educators who donate their time and guidance to nurture the youth’s creativity and talents.

ART STARTʼs success has received national media attention. It has been featured on: The Oprah Winfrey Show; Bravoʼs mini-documentary, “Stories of Arts for Change” by two-time Academy Award-Winning Director, Barbara Kopple; and the 2003 CBS Special, “Fulfilling the Dream”. In 2009, the Sundance Channel debuted, “The Hip Hop Project, a feature-length documentary about ART STARTʼs award-winning music program for teens in crisis, executive produced by Bruce Willis and Queen Latifah.
