Introduction of Art Gallery in New York Financial Center: Current Exhibit Features Dance Photography
PurePoint® Financial, a hybrid digital bank and division of MUFG Union Bank, recently introduced a new art gallery within its Financial Center on Park Avenue in New York. The gallery at this unconventional location is designed to celebrate and showcase local artists and their work.
With the intention of keeping art accessible to the masses, Kevin Richardson‘s “Dance as Art: The New York Photography Project” celebrates both dance and the city of New York by showcasing dancers as they perform in the streets for all to enjoy. His photography captures those moments in which the dancers and the city combine as art.
Kevin Richardson began taking photos in 2014 as a hobby and has conducted location photo shoots nearly every week since. His dance photography and other work have been featured in solo shows and private collections around the world.
The Park Avenue Financial Center opened in August 2017 to serve Manhattan clients and offer them a modern, streamlined and cashless savings experience. Clients also enjoy market-leading rates on savings accounts and CDs, no monthly fees, as well as the ability to meet with knowledgeable savings professionals for questions about FDIC insurance and how best to save.
Portion of Photography Sales Recently Donated to New York Theater Ballet Charity
Prior to Kevin Richardson‘s work, the Park Avenue location featured the work of photographer Rachel Neville. Her work was recently auctioned off. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Project LIFT, a New York Theater Ballet charity that provides opportunities to talented, at-risk children. PurePoint will match Rachel’s donation with proceeds going to the New York Philharmonic’s Very Young Composers program.
PurePoint Financial launched in February 2017, and the hybrid digital bank has continued to offer a unique savings experience tailored to the evolving needs of consumers and emphasizing service to their clients and local communities.
