Growing up in rural Missouri, Mike always understood community in the sense of a main street, a church, and the handful of places/people you intentionally interact with in a traditional small-town setting. A place like New York was so big as to be almost beyond reality, a place where crime, hostility, and the sheer number of people would preclude any real sense of community. To his surprise, upon moving to the City with his wife, Mike discovered that vibrant, thriving, and diverse communities existed everywhere he looked. With so many people walking, shopping, working, and interacting at the street level, the connection with his neighbors felt so much more palpable than in car-centric rural and suburban areas.

Now a self-described “hardcore neighborhood guy,” Mike told us that moving to New York fundamentally altered his view of what a true “community” was, and that he couldn’t imagine feeling that sense anywhere else now. “Flower Community” speaks to that unique block-to-block sense of community that only exists in New York - each square in the grid with it’s own organic and lively personality, it’s own identity. Woven together these communities work seamlessly to move, grow, change, and create a scene full of life.

Like the city itself, the work of artist Mike Perry is eccentric, energetic, colorful, and consistently surprising. Best known for his Emmy-winning animation sequences for Comedy Central’s Broad City, Mike’s prolific work spans nearly all forms of media, and has been featured in publications, galleries, exhibits, and public spaces across the globe. Wildly imaginative and eye catching, Mike’s pieces are as he describes them “love notes to the abstract, unknowable future.” He is uniquely able to infuse a joy into his work that feels missing from, and sorely needed by, our modern condition. To experience Mike’s work is to let go of pretense, to dream uninhibited, and to achieve a level of zero-f*cks-given fun you likely haven’t felt since the playground days.

The National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI)

The National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI) is the largest grassroots mental health organization in the United States, and is dedicated to a mission of building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

Mike’s personal connection to this cause stems from his father’s struggles with Schizophrenia and his desire to normalize (and expand) conversations around mental health. We’re honored to partner with Mike to support NAMI’s work to raise awareness, provide education, and advocate for people with mental illness in communities across the country.
