Thousands of people in Puerto Rico were left homeless, starving, and fighting for their lives. Nicole’s daughter, Emma, asked her to co-curate a show that would benefit the people of Puerto Rico. Emma recognized that when things went bad, they went bad simultaneously across the board. In an instant, the dysfunction spread across the island overnight, as there was extreme flooding, the power grid collapsed, cell towers ceased to function, and the banking system was thrown into disarray. This is an unprecedented humanitarian crisis that hit close to home for everyone as many families lost everything. Entire cities were left without power, clean water and the basic needs to survive. Emma insisted that she had to help! Nicole could not say no, and thankfully with the help of SOLD Magazine, Arlo Hotel Soho, and dozens of generous artists, this event is coming to fruition.
ALL proceeds go to Direct Relief where they will send money to the areas who need it the most.
The Mother / Daughter duo wanted to help Puerto Rico get back on its feet as soon as possible.
This was the best way they knew how to make a difference and that is why they brought in their art community to help them help the people of Puerto Rico.
