The Artists Foundation

The Artists Foundation was founded in Boston in 1973. It primarily works with artists in the Greater Boston area and nearby cities.

"The mission of the Artists Foundation: is to nourish excellence in the arts by enhancing the public role and economic position of artists; to build community among practicing artists and new communication between this vital community and the public; to support access to essential resources for artists in all disciplines, particularly low income and under served artists' access to health care and other social services; and to sponsor exhibitions of art for art's sake as well as innovative uses of art to promote public consideration of issues vital to diverse social, political, and economic groups."

The Foundation does a great job in creating the opportunity for artists to network with other artists in the art community, the general public, as well as private businesses. It strongly supports artists through resources that provide information on health care, job searches, tips for being in the arts and funding opportunities.
