Our Vision is of 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, 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.
In the past seven 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, and through that connection, to achieve sustainable improvements in their quality of life. On what used to be bare walls at health clinics, child protection agencies, and shelters, with your support, there can be beautiful visual works of art to help make some of life’s most difficult moments easier to bear for thousands of our neighbors.
