Small Works for Big Change features work created by artists and designers working within the historic Brooklyn Navy Yard (the Yard). All works are small in both stature – not larger than 24” x 24” x 24" – and price – not exceeding $1,200. All proceeds go directly to the artists, with all the artists donating 15% of their proceeds to the charity of their choice (identified below with art work). 

  

Launched in 2020 as a means to support the Yard's artists and designers during COVID-19, the Yard has continued this initiative in 2021 as part of its ongoing strategy to support its creative community in their economic recovery and growth. Work included is as diverse as the Yard itself and ranges from paintings to sculptures to photographs.  

 

Support your local artists. Invest in creators, innovators, and entrepreneurs.
