The SCNY Gallery briefly awoke from its sleepy summer hiatus on Tuesday Evening, August 7th for a fundraiser to kickoff David Kassan’s new non-profit foundation (www.kassanfoundation.org). The festivities consisted of a demo accompanied by live music, plus a silent auction.
The impetus for this new foundation came from a grant that David himself received early on in his career.
The Kassan Foundation’s Mission Statement: to nurture talent within individuals who may need a little financial help and to develop that talent. Each year the foundation will award grants to two individuals, one musical artist and one visual artist.
