Thank you for your interest in our limited-edition RALPH PUCCI x PETER ASTROM face masks. We started this initiative to support BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) artists and administrators struggling with financial hardship due to COVID-19 and we are very grateful for your contributions.
These unisex face masks are comfortable, breathable, and sized to fit your face perfectly. This product is nonmedical and intended as a face covering in public settings when social distancing is difficult to maintain.
It is with deep appreciation that we thank Peter Astrom for the use of his image "Raising Cloud." Recognized as a pioneer in both the “instant art” movement and in postmodern photography, Peter has had an incredible career and is one of Ralph's long-time favorite painters. His style references his Swedish heritage and love of nature and, increasingly, a more intricate and delicate palette. Peter has had solo shows with Pucci in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami. He has also painted murals in our New York and Los Angeles galleries. To learn more about Peter, check out his website, www.peterastrom.com, or our website www.ralphpucci.com.
100% of proceeds will be going towards the Arts Leaders of Color Emergency Fund. In March 2020, Arts Administrators of Color set up an Arts Leaders of Color Emergency Fund, which supports BIPOC artists & arts administrators impacted by COVID-19 through $200 microgrants. As of April 14, 2020, over 7,000 arts leaders have express financial need through the emergency fund application.
