Blu Dot is thrilled to feature its newly launched artwork collection, ART MODE, in its NoMad and Upper East Side stores for this year’s NYCxDESIGN. This new collection of artwork is created in partnership with three non-profit art organizations that support artists with developmental disabilities — LAND Gallery & Studio, NIAD Art Center, and SAGE Studio & Gallery.

The ART MODE Collection captures the pure joy that comes from making art and supports individuals who inspire a more creative way of living. Featuring designs from 14 artists across the three studios, the collection includes 16 original works highlighting a wide range of subjects from abstract landscapes to detailed depictions of animals, vehicles, and the built world. The collection will be available in-person at Blu Dot NYC’s NoMad and Upper East Side stores and on with 100% of profits going directly back to the artists and the studios.

The collection will be available for purchase at Blu Dot’s Nomad store (79 Madison Ave, New York, NY 10016) and at Blu Dot’s Upper East Side Store (715 Lexington Ave, New York, NY 10022) from Thursday, May 16th through Summer during store hours.
