WFMU is an independent, listener supported radio station broadcasting to the greater NYC area. Proceeds from this benefit will go towards building a new antenna in Manhattan.
WFMU is a freeform radio station that broadcasts out to the greater NYC area at 91.1 FM and online at wfmu.org. The station is a registered 501©3 non-profit organization, runs no commercials or underwriting announcements and is almost entirely funded by listener donations. Long revered for its unorthodox and eclectic programming, WFMU celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2008.
The FCC has granted WFMU permission to erect a much needed booster antenna in Manhattan.. In order to raise funds for our new antenna WFMU commissioned a series of limited edition prints by some of our favorite artists.
Back in late 2008 the station also held an art benefit show at Printed Matter from December 6th to December 13th selling work from the following artists:
Brian Alfred / Tauba Auerbach / Sarah Bedford / Nina Bovasso / Olaf Breuning / Tom Burkhardt / Damien Correll / Ellie Curtis / Michael Dumontier & Neil Farber / Mitch Epstein / Jad Fair / Kyle Field / Matthieu Gafsou / Gelitin / Luis Gispert / Stuart Hawkins / Mark Warren Jacques / Chris Johanson* / Daniel Johnston / Mel Kadel / Mike Kelley / Terence Koh / Michael Krueger / Greg Lamarche / Christian Marclay / Richard Prince / Steve Powers / Andrea Robbins + Max Becher / Cindy Sherman / Casey Jex Smith / Geoffrey Todd Smith / Deb Sokolow / Swoon / Scott Teplin / Will Yackulic
Thanks to Printed Matter as well as all the artists and galleries who generously donated work.
