In September of 2016, Cody saw a story on "Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood" about how the oldest oak in America (600+ years) that was currently living on a Revolutionary War graveyard on the property of the Presbyterian Church of Basking Ridge was dying. The very next day, he jumped in the car and went to Basking Ridge to draw the tree before it had to be cut down.
The locals of Basking Ridge embraced Cody, and what he was trying to capture. Over the course of the next year, a couple locals in particular, Lydia Kerrick and Deborah Ellen, took it into their hands to purchase the piece and have each of the children in the town donate one dollar to go towards the framing and cost of the piece. They called this, "The Acorn Project," and in May of 2017, at the 300th anniversary celebration for the church, Lydia, Deborah, the "acorns," and Cody donated the piece in front of the entire town.
In April of 2017, a print of Cody's drawing of "Holy Oak" was featured in the inaugural Cedar Lane Arts Center juried exhibition in Ossining, NY.
In March of 2017, one of Cody's hand-painted sneakers was featured in a juried exhibition at the Blue Door Gallery in Yonkers, NY.
In 2015, actor/activist Adrian Grenier was crowdfunding his documentary, "Lonely Whale." He posted on Instagram, asking his followers to donate and help make Lonely Whale part of the Entourage crew.
Cody did just that with a beautiful charcoal drawing which Adrian and his buddies caught wind of and used to help promote the campaign on social media.
Cody helped kick off the construction of the, now, Mario Cuomo Bridge, and say goodbye to the Tappan Zee as part of an art show at the Nyack Community Outreach Center. Cody then donated his work to the center.
In 2014, Cody had his portrait of heavyweight boxer, Amir Mansour, printed on a t-shirt and worn in the ring on national TV. (The portrait can be seen in Cody's Famous Faces Collection.)
