Art for Justice Fund

Celebrating Julie Mehretu

The Art for Justice Fund (A4J) is a new non-profit organization that provides direct grants to artists and advocates focused on safely reducing the prison population, promoting justice reinvestment, and creating art that changes the narrative around mass incarceration. Since its launch in 2017, A4J has invested more than $92 million across 175 grants and aims to invest a total of at least $100 million by 2022.

Project Intro

In order to raise a portion of the capital for these grant disbursements, A4J approached CMYK to help produce and broadcast an event celebrating the fund’s mission and bringing attention to an auction for an original Julie Mehretu work for the benefit of the organization.

Using our powerful CMYKtv software, we built A4J a customized WordPress platform for the event, complete with all the fixings, including a chatroom, Q&A module, and animated audience reaction feedback.
