A Bit of Background
We exist to empower, break down barriers, and foster positive spaces for tomorrow's artists by mentoring and investing in their future today. We do this through awarding scholarships, advocating for more promising art resources for students K-12 and beyond, and showcasing artists of color from varying disciplines.
