Art Collectors


Richard Rivera's Eagles of New York provides fine art collectors with a unique opportunity to invest early in great aesthetics that offers collectors the potential for economic benefit as Rivera advances his creative series. These large-format photographs form a quality alternative investment. Initially, 15 out of 26 large-format images from this series are available for purchase. Richard Rivera's Eagles of New York is the first of a planned series of art projects in major cities around the world including Richard Rivera's Faces of Melbourne collection begun December 2012, and Richard Rivera's Lions of London scheduled to start in late 2016. These international projects are expected to increase the value of Rivera’s images within five years.





















The Eagles of New York collection was photographed during and around the Occupy Wall Street protests of 2011 and 2012. The photographs become social commentary on life in the City, and how the best qualities that reflect the intrinsic character of New York tend to go unnoticed when we are overwhelmed with the bustle of daily life. These marvelous works of art have galvanized everyone who learns of Rivera’s creative journey.


Rivera, the quintessential New Yorker, was born and raised on Manhattan’s east side, graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, and has been a photographer, artist, and writer for over 30 years. Rivera’s work is in the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Museum.
