826 was founded in 2002 by award-winning author Dave Eggers and award-winning educator Nínive Calegariby. Now with a network of creative writing and tutoring centers in seven cities across America, the 826 branch in New York is based in Park Slope and located at the Brooklyn Super Hero Supply Company. 826NYC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 with their creative writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write.

New York based gallery David Zwirner is currently exhibiting the artworks. The auction features works from established and emergent artists such as Richard PrinceRaymond Pettibon and Eduardo Sarabia (in collaboration with Marcel Dzama).
