What do you get when 50 of today’s top artists are given creative freedom and innovative technology to aid their gift? Polaroid poised this question when they provided 50 Gl10 Instant Mobile Printers, a device said to be like a “portable photo booth in the palm of your hand,” to 50 artists (ranging from James Franco to Cynthia Rowley and Tory Burch) to create 50 unique works of art. The iconic brand is hosting the Made in Polaroid Art Exhibit, open to the public at Milk Studios from September 7th-13th and a charity auction on September 14th at Philips de Pury on Park Ave. All proceeds from the auction will benefit Free Arts NYC, a non-profit organization that “provides arts and mentoring programs to under-served children.” Celebrities, fashion designers, photographers and musicians alike are united in their “go anywhere, print anywhere, and share” philosophy.
