The group hopes to raise at least $30,000 by Jan. 11, which would go toward legal costs if New York State's Court of Appeals agrees to hear the opponents' case against NYU's plan.
"We've had no trouble getting many of the Village's most stellar figures in the arts and entertainment to help us out in this struggle," said Mark Crispin Miller, an organizer with the group and a professor at NYU.
Miller said Glass is a "dedicated backer" of the anti-expansion movement. Others who donated their work include Gary Indiana, a longtime art critic at The Village Voice whose work was recently featured in the 2014 Whitney Biennial, who gave a drawing of cats to be sold for $5,000.
Those who want to make a smaller donation can give $200 to get a campaign button and a satirical poster depicting NYU President John Sexton as the Roman emperor Nero.
Other items for sale include a signed DVD of the documentary "Gasland" for $500, a boxed set of Lapham’s Quarterly signed by Lewis Lapham for $2,500 and a 12-piece set of signed copies of Eric Bogosian's work, including plays and a CD and DVDs of his performances.
An NYU spokesman declined to comment on the fundraising effort.
