    ART SAVES LIVES  is the mantra of Art Start, a not-for-profit organization that “uses the creative process to nurture the voices, hearts, and minds of historically marginalized youth.” The group conducts workshops in partnership with youth organizations, schools, alternative sentencing programs, and residences for youth and families experiencing homelessness to encourage a constructive life process among “at risk” youth and a larger conversation about the future of our communities.

    Monty has had a long relationship with Art Start and has provided architectural consultation and design services over the years on a largely pro-bono basis. BFA is now engaged in the design and construction of a new, 900 sf office and classroom facility for the organization, located in the West Chelsea Building in the Chelsea arts district of Manhattan.
