Niche Media presents “Art of the City”—a celebration of the most talented, buzz-worthy emerging artists across the U.S.. Art of The City connects these artists with our affluent and influential audience. The “Art of the City” Summer program promotes the freshest, boldest talent in each of our 11 cities, combined with generous support for local arts-focused charitable organizations.
As part of our Art of the City initiative, we've partnered with Charitybuzz to auction off pieces from the artists featured on our Summer covers. The auction will be live July 8-August 21 on Charitybuzz.com.

Her mixed media works have been featured on the UK Travel Channel’s “Ethical Hedonist” television show and she recently completed a collaborative collage project in residence at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, in partnership with New York’s Art Production Fund.
