About the event
The Myriadis a group of artists who came together with the goal of showcasing new work and promoting collaboration between artists in different mediums. As an artist collective, we are founded on the belief that new work deserves to be celebrated, that all art looks better with a drink in your hand, and that networking doesn't have to be a dirty word. Our quarterly events consist of paintings, sculpture, live music, stand up comedy, short films, play readings, performance art, slam poetry, dance, and anything else DeVos wouldn’t want to fund in a public school. Our past six events have sold out, which led to us look for a more permanent space partnership which could accommodate our growing needs as a business.
In Support Ofis a retail concept with the goal of bringing inspiring talent to the forefront while supporting causes considered important. Their work has been featured in Refinery 29, NY Magazine, Elle, Domino, Apartment Therapy, and more, and as they continue to widen their sphere, they began to explore what it would mean to bring live events into the space. Their mission of bringing people together and showcasing talent aligns perfectly with the goals of the Myriad, and so we have partnered to create a series of summer events aimed at exploring the locus of art and community. These events, hosted by In Support Of in their backyard gallery space, will introduce the artist network of The Myriad to the design collaborative of In Support Of. Each event will have a medium-specific focus as well as a content-based theme. Throughout the summer we will showcase film, poetry, live music, and personal essays.
In service of using art to make the world a better place, we also hope to use this collaboration to benefit some of the nonprofit organizations that In Support Of has previously worked with. In doing this we hope to shed light on worthy causes, create a space for artists of all mediums to shine, and continue to grow the mission of both The Myriad and In Support Of.

Event 7: The Myriad presents Art Night
The Myriad NYC will put up a multimedia event to showcase new paintings, music, poetry, film,and more-- we will source new talent and invite artists from our summer events to show their work again.
Art Night doubles as a networking event and will serve as the final event of the summer to close the In Support Of x Myriad collaboration.
Why should you sponsor?
The Events will have a reach of upwards of 500 people attending and 3,000 on social media that will help promote the potential sponsor while giving them access to the up and coming art world in NYC.
I am an Ismael Pieter, and I, along with a few of my colleagues, created the artist collective known as the Myriad immediately after our graduation from New York University. WE have been functioning for a year and have held 5 different multimedia events around all of NYC with a reach of upwards of 300 atttendants.
We are continuing to grow and with our new connection to In Support Of, we have double our attendance and hope to scale up our events starting this summer.
