Contemporary New York City artist Chris Riggs for Mayor has partnered with ePromos Promotional Products LLC, a leading promotional products distributor in the enterprise solutions and eCommerce space to create sustainable art. Chris Riggs x ePromos—a 16-piece sculpture collection—was made exclusively from damaged or defective promo products and found objects.

“What many people would see as trash, Riggs saw as art,” says ePromos President Steve Paradiso. “This abstract expressionist collection interprets ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ in a fresh, modern way.”

All pieces are for sale on the Chris Riggs Gallery and retail for $2,998$4,999. A portion of all sales in the collection will be donated to the Boys & Girls Club of America COVID-19 Relief Fund, which supports families of first responders.

Additionally, convenience delivery service goPuff will match the donation to the Relief Fund up to $1MM through #GivingTuesdayNow—May 5, 2020. ePromos has already made a separate contribution.

In addition to this charitable giving initiative, ePromos is committed to supporting its worldwide community through their ePromos for Good program that awards free promotional items to charities and nonprofits.

“Giving back has always been central to our organization,” says Paradiso, “as has promoting sustainability and creativity. Bringing those pieces together—creating sustainable art that supports the Boys & Girls Club and our first responders—was a very natural fit for ePromos. We’re thrilled with the work Chris Riggs created and overwhelmed by the reaction and support.”
