NEW YORK, NY.- Puzzles with Purpose today announces Art x Puzzles, an online benefit sales initiative conceived to support artists during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis through the sale of Collector Edition Jigsaw Puzzles. Organized by Puzzles with Purpose, the effort launches with exclusive limited edition puzzles created in close collaboration with over 70 contemporary artists from across the globe to support artist studios, existing wider artist relief efforts and causes of personal social and economic concern to participating artists. To that end, a percentage of all proceeds from sales will directly benefit the artists’ chosen charities.

Also included are actor/artist Billy Zane's first painting, “Telemundo”, created on set during the filming of Titanic; Andres Serrano’s “America Jewel-Joy Stevens”; Brandon Lipchik’s generative wooden puzzle using AI advanced technology; and Christopher Makos’ tribute to Andy Warhol, “Andy in Clown Nose”, a giant 2000-piece traditional paper puzzle.
