The National Arts Program's mission is to provide an uninhibited opportunity for employees and their family members to participate in a professional visual arts exhibition.
For 33 years, The National Arts Program® has held annual exhibitions featuring the artwork of employees in a variety of venues including the workplaces of cities, counties, airports, hospitals transit authorities, and other large organizations.
With 82 exhibitions held within 38 states, the program produces around 15,000 pieces of visual art each year, demonstrating to the general public a human dimension of employees previously hidden, making it a vital part of the local cultural community.
