Renowned contemporary artist Takashi Murakami raised over $1.3M for the Black Lives Matter Movement through his recent sales of exclusive, limited-edition prints on NTWRK.
All of the profits from the sales were donated to the following social justice organizations: Color Of Change, Black Lives Matter (National, LA, Detroit, Boston, Philly), Equal Justice Initiative, Communities United Against Police Brutality, Advancement Project, My Block, My Hood, My City, Precious Dreams Foundation, The Bklyn Combine, Arts Administrators of Color, The Okra Project, The Hidden Genius Project, 100 Black Men of Los Angeles, Women in Entertainment Network (Ween), Our Own, and Street Code Academy.
“I’m grateful that I was able to take small part in the historic BLM movement and to make a social statement,” says Murakami. “It was entirely thanks to NTWRK’s platform that I was able to get involved while being in Japan. I also want to sincerely thank everyone who participated and contributed by entering the draw for the prints.”
