Stir, Splatter + Roll 2015
Thank you so much for all that attended, we hope to see each and everyone one of you next year!
Please join us on April 9th for colorful cocktails, painting alongside some of our city's leading architects, artists + designers, a festive gala dinner + live auction! Take home a one-of-a-kind treasure from our most important fundraiser of the year!
The high-energy fete takes place in a Publicolored school and draws dynamic New Yorkers and luminaries in the worlds of business, fashion, politics, design, education, and philanthropy.
All proceeds go toward our mission to engage disconnected students in their education, while teaching them strong and transferable work habits so they are prepared to be productive in both college and career.

This year we will be honoring the visionary contemporary art gallerist Paula Cooper.
We are honoring Paula for her lifelong extraordinary commitment to contemporary artists and to social activism. Her independence as a ground-breaking gallerist continues to make an indelible mark on the art world, and Publicolor is thrilled to partner with Paula and the Estate of Sol LeWitt in recreating 2 of Sol LeWitt’s wall drawings in an underperforming school in New York City in 2015.
Our co-chairs for the evening include Gene+Barbara Kohn, Elissa+Greatneck Richman, Sascha Bauer, and Jeffrey Banks. We are thrilled that they will all be joining Publicolor Founder + President Ruth Lande Shuman for this high-energy event.
