On multiple platforms, NYC-ARTS aims to increase awareness of New York City’s nonprofit cultural organizations, whose offerings greatly benefit residents and visitors—from children to adults, and teenagers to senior citizens.
NYC-ARTS promotes cultural groups’ activities and events to tri-state, national and international audiences through nonprint media, using new technologies as they develop. Through web sites, television, mobile applications and social media, NYC-ARTS nurtures New York City’s position as a thriving cultural capital of the world, one that has both world renowned institutions and those that are focused on local communities.

This episode of Etsy’s Handmade Portraits series, directed by Alex Rappoport, profiles an artist who finds inspiration in the stories of strangers trying to find one another on the Internet after a chance encounter. Sophie Blackall’s whimsical paintings illustrate Craigslist’s Missed Connections posts in humorous ways, perhaps interpreting their details more literally than the authors intended. Her illustrations have been published as a book and are available on Etsy, of course.
