AMPL!FY Partners Designers With Social Justice Non-Profits

Created by Worldstudio’s Mark Randall in collaboration with Make Art with Purpose Founder Janeil Engelstad, AMPL!FY is a public art and design initiative that partners an artist or designer with a non-profit organization working on the front lines of social justice to create thought-provoking posters. The goal: in a time of heightened political and social tension, AMPL!FY seeks to  leverage the power of art and design to amplify the issues addressed by non-profit organizations with missions that confront critical issues.



The program is produced in partnership with New York City Department of Transportation’s Art Program, Museum of Arts and Design and Harlem Stage. The posters are showcased on DOT Art display cases in lower Manhattan and in an exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design. Specific locations include: Public Art at the Manhattan Financial District, Water Street between Pine Street and Maiden Lane and Gouverneur Lane between Water Street and Front Street – November 2, 2017 – January 2018; and Exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design, 2 Columbus circle, New York, NY 10019 November 2 – January 7.
