A message from Claude
New York, as my birthplace, is the artistic and driving force behind who I am and what I do. Especially now, in these difficult times, we must continue to support the arts in these creative hubs.
Art has the power to bring us together when times are tough. The artist is a vehicle for the pain, love, and emotions we all want to express but don’t always have the courage or ability to do so ourselves.
Claude understands how everyone, artists included, is affected by this Covid-19 pandemic. Many artists are struggling to just meet their basic needs. As a show of support for them, Claude will donate half of our profits from sales between June 1, 2020 and July 1, 2020 to the Artist Relief and the New York Foundation for the Arts – two organizations that are sending support to artists in this time of need.
If you purchase an item from our online store, thank you! Together these small acts can aide artists and send the message that they matter – they are the barometer of our collective unconscious.
