Crusade for Art x CB2

June 1, 2017

Our latest partnership gives artists a national platform.

Nothing brings us more joy than discovering artists and sharing their work with the world. So when we learned about Crusade for Art—a non-profit whose mission is to engage new audiences with art—we were inspired to collaborate.

Together we selected three established artists in cities with CB2 stores: Chicago, New York and Miami. Each artist created an exclusive trio of prints for us to sell at her local store, and only 50 copies of each set will be available.

To celebrate the launch and introduce customers to the artists, we’re hosting parties in each city. Chicago’s kick-off event with artist Maggie Meiners happened last week, but we’ll be in New York at our Soho store today (!) from 2-6pm with artist Liz Arenberg.

Based in Miami? Head to the South Beach store on June 6 from 6-8pm to meet artist Claudia Cebrian.

RSVP for the NYC party here and the South Beach party here.

Can’t make it to any of our parties?
Don’t let that stop you from getting to know our three talented artists:

Claudia Cebrian
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Claudia moved Miami in 2002. A collaboration with Architectural Digest led her to Maine Media Workshops, where she learned from fine art photographer Cig Harvey. Claudia’s photos always begin with a concept, and at times, she tries to control a photo’s variables. But other times, she simply goes out with her camera to explore the world.

Liz Arenberg
A photographer and educator living in Brooklyn, New York, Liz received her BFA in Photography at Parsons School of Design and her MFA in Photography, Video & Related Media from the School of Visual Arts. Liz was a participant in Review Santa Fe, Flash Powder Projects, the Eddie Adams workshop, a fellow at the Vermont Studio Center, and she’s currently working with Galerie Vevais on a book of portraiture. Liz is co-director of Crusade for Art Brooklyn chapter and a museum educator at the Museum of the City of New York.

Maggie Meiners
Born and raised outside of Chicago, Maggie holds a BA in Cultural Anthropology from University of Colorado-Boulder and a Masters in Education from DePaul University in Chicago. Her photographs have been widely exhibited and remain in the permanent collections of the Illinois Institute of Art, Wheaton College, Harrison Street Lofts and more, as well as on loan at the American Embassy in Uruguay. Maggie is also co-director of a community exhibition space called “Platform” with artist Justine Bianco.
