Avenues of Art returns this year with the Billions and Billions of People auction in Director Park on June 25th from 5:00 -8:00 pm. Up for auction at the event are the colorful, hand-painted panels that made up the Billions and Billions of People public art installation that once surrounded the Park Avenue West construction site.
Commissioned by President & CEO of TMT Development, Vanessa Sturgeon in 2011 to help beautify the site, these panels were painted by local artists and homeless youth served by New Avenues for Youth. Sturgeon currently sits on the Board of Directors for New Avenues for Youth, a non-profit that her grandfather, Tom Moyer, helped found. The organization helps to empower homeless youth to exit street life. TMT Development is proud to have provided real life, paid job training for this project and continues to support the mission of New Avenues for Youth.
The event is open to the public and all proceeds go to support New Avenues for Youth. To purchase VIP tickets for the event, click here.
