Art Exchange Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, dedicated to presenting highest quality art with the goal to enrich and expand audiences in the United States through photography, live performances, film, literary events, and educational programming.
We believe in the power of the arts and culture and their unique ability to lift the human spirit. Arts do not only transform artists through creative processes of contributing their vision or craft. Arts transform our understanding of other cultures, religions, and races; they transform dialogues about diversities and help us celebrate our differences. Arts and culture have an impact on our lives in subtle and complex ways - while they illuminate and enrich our inner lives and emotional worlds, arts are also a dynamic force for fostering social wellbeing and cohesion, educational system and growing the economy. We support the notion that arts and culture should be thought of as a strategic national resource.
In selecting the most appropriate works to present, we consider unique artwork of both emerging and acclaimed artists in artistic disciplines and traditions from multitude of cultures while demonstrating our respect for universal human values and for the country or origin of artistic creation. We work closely with artists, communities, and organizations in the United States and abroad in implementing our programs. In this way, we select the most appropriate works to present in furthering our mission.
