Summer Collection debuts at The Rockaway Hotel + Spa

ART FOR CHANGE, Rising Tide Effect and The Rockaway Hotel + Spa were delighted to come together to celebrate the debut of a curated collection of new prints on display throughout the Hotel with an incredible summer sunset as a backdrop. Through the lobby and up to the rooftop of the Hotel, artists, collectors, curators, friends, and even some of Rising Tide Effect’s swim students toasted to the works commissioned by ART FOR CHANGE from Erik Parker, Alissa McKendrick, Alessandro Teoldi and Hiba Schahbaz.

A celebration of all that makes the season sparkle, Summer was in full swing on July 12th on the rooftop of the Rockaway Hotel + Spa. A mellow affair with light refreshments and salty air, there were smiles all around in unveiling new hand-embellished prints as the sun set on Far Rockaway Beach.

“We’re so grateful to the team from the Rockaway Hotel + Spa for hosting such a joyful occasion in celebration of this new series benefitting Rising Tide Effect’s important programs. It is always a privilege to have the opportunity to gather in person and celebrate the incredible artists we collaborate with,” says ART FOR CHANGE Founder, Jeanne Masel. “It is wonderful to hear directly from the team at Rising Tide Effect as well as some of the children who have participated in their life changing programs. There was magic in the air that night as we all connected over the impact this important organization has on young people’s lives and it is a privilege to witness its offerings and impact grow.”
