Move the Crowd Annual Gala Thank You & Recap


On Friday, May 3, we hosted our third annual Move the Crowd fundraiser on the JXTA campus. It’s hard to believe that this is the third time we’ve completely transformed our space and opened our doors for our biggest party of the year, but this turned out to be our best yet.


We raised $119,000 through sponsorships and individual donations. 250 attendees came through, all dressed to the nines. Tats Cru were in the house (alongside their first Minneapolis-based gallery exhibition!), and we showed off the brand new mural they painted. We had amazing DJs and performers to entertain us. And our youth apprentices showed off some of their current projects and sold their artwork. This year’s fundraising supported JXTA’s foundational programs: VALT, Free Wall, and PaCC.

Bronx-based graffiti artists Tats Cru finished painting a custom mural for the skate-able art plaza in May 2019.
