Yesterday Eric Granowsky hosted an event for the art collective, Artists 4 Israel, in his raw, 12-floor space in the West Village. Artists 4 Israel is a community of creative individuals working together in an ongoing, collaborative project expressing Israel's right to exist in peace and security. Renowned street artists painted on the rooftop overlooking the Hudson and throughout different floors inside the building. UR NEW YORK, SUE, and PAWN were some of the artists in attendance painting up until the sun went down. In an effort to raise funds for the artists' trip to paint bomb shelters and promote art education amongst the youth in Sderot and Kiryat Gat (towns on the border of the Gaza Strip) collectors, artists, and close friends came together for this intimate event.
