MEMBERSHIP & SUPPORT


Art instills values. It validates cultures. It cultivates a sense of self worthiness. Art is thought and expression and imagination. It refines and binds society through creative experiences. Art preserves and envisions the footprint of the human spirit. It strives for and achieves fulfillment. Painting, sculpture, music, dance, performance, literature, film, photography, design, architecture, ceramics, craft, even games nurture and uplift all humanity.
