Artist "Fight For Your Right" with Boxing Gloves

Toy Art Gallery is presenting “Fight For What’s Right”, Fight The City’s first annual custom boxing glove showcase. 

“Fight For What’s Right”, Fight The City’s first annual custom boxing glove showcase on Saturday May 4th, 2013 from 7pm-10pm. A showing in New York city will immediately follow on May 9th, 2013. Fight The City has partnered with talented artists from around the world to create unique one of a kind custom boxing gloves. Fight The City makes artist-driven gloves and gear to give fighters a choice of how to express themselves when they step into the ring. Taking this already crafted passion, and collaborating with the artists that inspire us only made sense. There will be showcasing a total of 40 gloves at this 1-night only events. Toy Art Gallery will be exhibiting and selling 10 pairs of gloves exclusively, while the remaining gloves will be auctioned off at the New York city showing on May 9th on Fight The City’s eBay page. A portion of all gloves proceeds benefit the Hoods to Woods Foundation. This foundation helps inner city kids get out to the wilderness to learn, grow, and become all they can be through outdoor activities such as snowboarding. This first of its kind event will be leading the way to Fight The City’s first ever limited edition boxing gloves from the twisted imagination of artist Scarecrowoven, known for his Ritual 3D deck series by Creature Skateboarding. Live music and the Grilled Cheese truck will be on hand to celebrate this special 1-night event." - Toy Art Gallery
