Urban Arts (est. 1992) raised nearly three-quarters of a million dollars Thursday night to inspire high school students from low-income communities to harness their creativity and access technology, generating lifelong success through exceptional educations and state-of-the-art careers. We’re futurists—advancing tech equity and leveling the digital playing field for diverse students, leaving no excuse to industries suffering under-representation issues. We’re impatient optimists. And we’re full STEAM ahead.
The Urban Arts Color Ball—the most diverse, dynamic gala of the season—broke all fundraising goals. The event was all swag—dopamine dressing to match the off-the-charts energy of the room, and stacked with diverse powerbrokers from tech, finance, art, and media. A downtown vibe in midtown.
