Mission Statement

The Love Yourself Project aspires to engaging, empowering, and encouraging underserved youths around New York City, through art-based workshops, to reach their fullest potentials.


We are a community of artists invested in the emergence of a new future--a future filled with new leaders who support the communities which they live in; a future modeled on the belief that progress and change start on an individual level, and when nurtured, impacts the lives of others in their communities and can spread around the world.

On Nov 19, 2010, the Love Yourself team took to the streets and subways of New York City, distributing over 500 "Love Yourself" stickers and hand-folded origami hearts, and encouraged people to engage in a conversation about self-love.

Since that day, Love Yourself Project events have taken place in schools, libraries, museums, galleries, parks, local businesses. The project is catching on to other countries around the globe.

We live in a rich society that is deprived of basic value of oneself. The Love Yourself Project is committed to the education of all people to help them be their full potential.

Love Yourself founder Michael Mut owned and operated Michael Mut Gallery on Avenue C in an effort to bring culturally and socially relevant art into the community as a source of empowerment and inspiration from 2009 to 2014.

With the help of others and their commitment to changing the way we think about ourselves, we challenge you to join our mission. Please contact Michael Mut at michael@loveyourselfproject.org, and visit us online at: www.loveyourselfproject.org.

And don't forget....LOVE YOURSELF!
