About Us

The Mission:

To serve the community as a progressive, bridge building cooperative, linking working artists to their surrounding community and the global professional collectors’ market for the sake of education, cultural enrichment, and economic betterment.

The Vision:

The Artists of the Rust Belt Vision includes the future formation of a focused arts incubator designed to increase public awareness of the arts community, address social, diversity, and economic issues as related to the artists and their association within their cultural environment and play to the strengthening of each participant’s unique creative vision. Our focus will include business art placement, public art installations, performances, hands-on educational workshops, artist markets, an arts publication, and travelling exhibitions. We will create an artist-run gallery that will be open to the public.
