Our events are best experienced in person or recapped via social media. In community and partnership, we work to curate exhibitions with businesses throughout NYC and more! Read about our event summaries on our blog,

The Spot Light, highlighting our community and curations.


We feature artist who we see are improving their presence in the art community or are making the brave decision to introduce their talents to the world. 

In support of minority youth, The Culture Candy partakes in many community outreach events and takes up charitable contributions to give back to the city we call home, New York City. 

Since 2019, The Culture Candy has partnered with The Summer Youth Employment Program to teach young artists in New York City how to start their art careers. We have raised money for homeless New Yorkers, provided food donations to the hungry, and have recently partnered with The School Girl Foundation for community projects in support of minority youth in Harlem, New York.
