Niche Media presents “Art of the City”—a celebration of the most talented, buzz-worthy emerging artists across the U.S.. Art of The City connects these artists with our affluent and influential audience. The “Art of the City” Summer program promotes the freshest, boldest talent in each of our 11 cities, combined with generous support for local arts-focused charitable organizations.
As part of our Art of the City initiative, we've partnered with Charitybuzz to auction off pieces from the artists featured on our Summer covers. The auction will be live July 8-August 21 on Charitybuzz.com.

Maggie Michael is a contemporary artist whose abstract paintings offer color combinations that clash as well as complement in a variegated apocalypse.

Her show was met with rave reviews. She has had solo and group shows for over 13 years in the U.S. and throughout Europe at some of the most prestigious art fairs and galleries including the Corcoran Gallery of Art.
