East Village-based artist Robert Galinsky has been going to Rikers Island and other area correctional facilities to help incarcerated teens via workshops on literature, creative writing and reading. He has launched an online auction to help advance the initiative — Literacy for Incarcerated Teens — and better assist teens in prison. Money raised from the auction will be put toward tools to facilitate the workshops and provide continuous resources such as guest artist talks, books and pencils. Several local shops, including Ninth Street Espresso, Roost, B Cup Cafe, Abraço and the East Village Vintage Collective have donated gifts for auction. You can find the auction details here.
