“I always thought I’d like my own tombstone to be blank. No epitaph and no name. Well, actually, I’d like it to say ‘FIGMENT.’ ” — Andy Warhol, 1985
… FIGMENT owes more than just its name to Andy Warhol, whose legendary excursions into experience-based and participatory art paved the way for so much of what we create today. On April 4, we pay tribute to Andy Warhol and all that he’s done for the NYC arts scene at GROUNDBREAKING: The Factory, our signature gala to raise funds to support the art and infrastructure of New York’s only free, family-friendly, weekend-long participatory art event.
Join us for one-of-a-kind performances, specialty cocktails, avant-garde hors d’oeuvres, 70′s-era music and dancing in a stunning Soho loft reminiscent of Warhol’s original Factory space. See art created in front of your eyes, plus bid on works by some of New York City’s most exciting emerging artists.
100% of proceeds to go benefit the NYC FIGMENT event, produced by the FIGMENT Project, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Embrace our art heritage and prepare for the future of FIGMENT. Buy your tax-deductible tickets now.
