Buy these fine art prints to support COVID-19 relief efforts

What makes a house a home? For some, it’s decor – collecting art and conversation pieces from around the world; a Madrid painting, Venetian glass or a Turkish lamp bought in an open-air bazaar. Now you can continue to decorate and enrich your home with new finds, while financially supporting those affected by COVID-19. La Ligne, a feminine brand founded by two former vogue staff members and former business manager of Rag & Bone, launched a coronavirus relief effort, the Giving Back initiative. A new project from the initiative, Home Editions, allows you to both purchase artwork and donate to No Kid Hungry, a nonprofit that fights childhood hunger.

In partnership with Philadelphia screenprinters Awesome Dudes Printing, and artists Julian Brown and Ross Stirling, La Ligne is selling five limited-edition 19″ x 25″ prints, available at lalignenyc.com through May 12. Each print is handmade by Awesome Dudes Printing and features the shape and form of lines and stripes – a big part of La Ligne’s brand identity. All prints are sold for $45 with all proceeds going to No Kid Hungry.

Although their New York flagship store at 996 Madison Avenue is closed due to the current global pandemic, La Ligne displayed the prints in its window, in a show of solidarity to “make New York feel like home. “.
