Shipping Update - April 26th, 2022
On behalf of Coalition for the Homeless and their production partner, Prospect, we are providing an update on the status of the KAWS and Amy Sherald plates. Because of ongoing production delays due to a variety of causes outside their control, these two designs have been delayed.
All Amy Sherald plate orders have shipped EXCEPT for those also waiting for a KAWS. These orders will ship as soon as the KAWS is available which is anticipated to be in May.
We are aware of the extraordinary delay in shipping these plates. Please know that everything has been done to speed this process along and that we are all extremely grateful for your patience and understanding. The plates will ship as soon as we receive them and tracking details will be provided at that time.
The Coalition for the Homeless is honored to work with over 40 world-renowned artists to create limited-edition dinner plates produced by Prospect and made available for sale on Artware Editions on November 16th at 10am EST.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Coalition for the Homeless. The funds raised by the sale of plates will provide food, crisis services, housing and other critical aid to thousands of people experiencing homelessness and instability.

About the Coalition for the Homeless
The Coalition for the Homeless is the nation’s oldest advocacy and direct service organization helping homeless individuals and families. We believe that affordable housing, sufficient food and the chance to work for a living wage are fundamental rights in a civilized society.
Since our inception in 1981, the Coalition has worked through litigation, public education and direct services to ensure that these goals are realized, and in that time, we have given more than one million homeless New Yorkers a way off the streets. More people are now homeless in New York City than at any time since the Great Depression. The Coalition for the Homeless provides lifesaving relief to thousands of homeless New Yorkers each and every day.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, we dramatically increased our direct services to meet the huge surge in need, and are now preparing for the difficult days ahead when the economic crisis is expected to bring a new wave of evictions, job loss, hunger, and homelessness. We thank you for your support of the Artist Plate Project.
