Long Island-based emerging artist Steven Calapai’s recent art gallery debut in Babylon helped raise funds for the breast cancer nonprofit Got Checked?

The art show featured more tan 75 works of original art at the new Molto Pizza Babylon Village owned by Massimiliano Gargiulo. Numerous pieces of art were donated by Calapai to the charity to help raise awareness and to spread the word for early prevention of breast cancer. 

“There is no better feeling than people telling me how my art has not only inspired them but helped them continue to get through this pandemic,” said Calapai.

Calapai, a native Long Islander, artist, philanthropist, and entrepreneur, created this incredible collection of art during the pandemic to bring a different and beautiful view of the world in the tough COVID-19 era.

Calapai is also touring throughout New York, partnering with well known charities such as Team Steam Nation-Jeff, Marco and Mario Andretti as well as Got Checked?

It was an evening of love, hope, great food and comradery as Long Island came together for a great cause.
