Your pledge funds the full 2015 season of FGP, which will bring the work of over 200 artists to thousands of audience members in this year alone. Pledge now and you will help FGP expand its outreach to artist and audience members alike, making it one of the largest-scale free live-art showcases in New York. Pledge now and you will make it easier for artists to make art.

For the past 6 years, FGP has nurtured hundreds of artists and developing projects. We are looking forward to continuing to offer our community a deadline, a guideline and a space as often as we can. Fresh Ground Pepper exists because the financial strain most artists experience will squelch their artistry. We exist because artists cannot create and edit at the same time. Space must be made for creation without a product in mind. We exist because ideas beget ideas. Collaboration is important on an individual level, but also on a process, career building level. We exist because art is worthy of celebration.

Whether you join in as artist or audience member, your support is greatly appreciated! Help FGP fund art today.


Sixpoint Craft Ales is a local brewery that has been with us since day one and as we have grown, so have they. Ask for one at the next FGP!


Give back to the community however you can! Whether you own a huge corporation or just a printer we can borrow, everything helps!
