Eat your bacon and eggs atop a fine artist-decorated plate and support those in need with Artist Plate Project 2020.
Fifty top-notch artists have lent a helping hand in aid of Coalition for the Homeless, an organisation established in 1981 to help homeless men, women and children.
Ed Ruscha, Eddie Martinez, Rashid Johnson, Yoshitomo Nara, Nate Lowman and Jenny Holzer are among those who have created limited-edition porcelain plates and will available to purchase from 14 November.
Homelessness in New York has risen by almost 150 per cent in the last 10 years and a recent report notes that homelessness is unequivocally an issue of racial justice by highlighting enormous disparities between the rates of homelessness among black, Hispanic and white New Yorkers. Equally concerning numbers show the plight of those suffering from physical and mental disabilities.
Coalition for the Homeless is America’s oldest organisation dealing with the issue of homelessness and money raised from the sale of the plates will go towards providing food, crisis services, housing and other critical aid to thousands of homeless and at-risk people a day.
