Dover Street Market and Sky High Farm Enlist 23 Artists To Help Combat Food Insecurity

Dover Street Market and Sky High Farm are now six months into their year-long partnership dedicated to fighting food insecurity, and after a streetwear-packed Chapter One collection — which raised $130,000 USD through an apparel collaboration with the likes of Awake NY, NOAH and Supreme to support the Farm’s donation-based harvesting efforts — the philanthropic duo is back with Chapter Two.

As the partnership aims to fundraise through intersections of streetwear, art, food, and design, Chapter Two — scheduled in alignment with major art fair Frieze New York‘s grand return — features original artworks by 23 visionaries screen-printed onto a variety of T-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, hats and totes.

Among the range of designs: Urs Fischer offers a colorful depiction of pigs, chickens, and dogs climbing a “Sky High” tree, Joe Bradley presents a rendition of Mickey Mouse holding a sign reading “Peace,” Jordon Wolfson illustrates a cartoonish bookworm above the caption, “God is god is god is” and Maurizio Cattelan gets straight to the point with simplistic lettering that reads “white trash.”

The entirety of the collection features artists Anicka Yi, Cyprien Gaillard, Dash Snow Estate and Dan Colen (Nest), Elizabeth Peyton, The Gordon Parks Foundation, Hank Willis Thomas, Jeff Koons, Jenny Holzer, Joe Bradley, Jordan Wolfson, Josh Smith, Kara Walker, Kunle Martins, JAM Gallery/Senga Nengudi (Linda Goode Bryant), Mark Grotjahn, Maurizio Cattelan, Nate Lowman, Rashid Johnson, Raymond Pettibon, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Rita Ackermann, Takashi Murakami and Urs Fischer.

In tandem with each artist’s work, each apparel item will feature Sky High’s moon and strawberry iconography, illustrated by Joana Avillez.

The Artist Chapter will be available to shop on Dover Street Market’s webstore, Sky High Farm’s webstore, and in-person at DSM’s New York and Los Angeles locations. 100 percent of profits will benefit SHF’s mission of improving access to nutritious food through harvesting produce and meat for donation in New York State.

In other Dover Street Market news, the brand recently released an exclusive, logo-centric Stüssy collection of hoodies, zip-ups and T-shirts.
