Fostering Creativity, Inspiration, Education, and Equality.
"The foundation and glue to our continued efforts in the various exhibitions, projects, school scholarship opportunities, and artist development/ LGBTQIA+ support services are largely held together by donations from our artists, collectors, and members of the communities to whom we serve. It is truly a humbling honor"
