DRAW: Art Event to Support Young New Yorkers’ Art Not Jail Program

Sugarlift invites you into the artist’s subway-riding world with DRAW, a one-night-only gallery show of drawings created that day and for sale, for the price of a 30-day Metrocard.

Featured artists include: Guno Park, Dina Brodsky, Anna Park Art, Daniel Maidman, Nicolas V Sanchez, Dorian Vallejo, Melanie Vote, and more!

Tickets to the gallery event, which include lite bites and all-you-can-drink beer, are $10 and 100% of proceeds will go to Young New Yorkers’ Art Not Jail program, an arts-based alternative to incarceration for teenagers.


Join us on the subway!
The artists will be riding the subway that afternoon, creating the drawings for the show. If you’re an artist and would like to join or if you’re an observer who would like to witness the art being created, the subway schedule is below. All are welcome!

Bonus: the first 25 people to meet our group at Union Square will receive a free Moleskine notebook and drawing materials! Thanks Moleskine!
