OUR VISION IS A WORLD WHERE ALL PEOPLE GET TO EXPERIENCE THE POWER OF ART.
Regardless of socio-economic background, all people should have access to original art in their daily lives, and we continue to shift traditional ideas of who can display and experience fine art. Through our work of placing donated artworks by local artists in non-profit organizations, we dream of the day that every service agency will have original art transforming their public spaces. Over the past nine years, artists have been able to gain opportunities to increase their community reach, and view us as a valuable philanthropic partner.
Our Mission is to connect lives with art by connecting local artists to some of the most vulnerable populations in our state. Through that connection we aim to achieve sustainable improvements in their quality of life. With your support, on what used to be bare walls at health clinics, child protection agencies, and shelters, there can be beautiful artwork to help make some of life’s most difficult moments easier to bear for thousands of our neighbors.
