When we announced just over a year ago that Crusade for Art was forming as an official non-profit organization with a focus on creating demand for fine art photography, we were overwhelmed by your support. And your enthusiasm and encouragement continues to drive us to try to blow your socks off.
We published a best-selling book, Crusade For Your Art, to help photographers navigate the fine art world. We launched two wildly successful CSA programs to connect talented photographers to budding collectors. We awarded $10,000 to makeart collectors out of babies in Pittsburgh. We created a quarterly online curation program to showcase up and coming photographers. And our first local chapter is up and running, with several more on the horizon.
Crusade for Art began as a crazy arts engagement project that involved a blue VW bus and spirited photographers from around the country. From our early beginnings with the tour and a passion for creating positive change, Crusade for Art has developed into a vibrant non-profit organization.
And of course, this is only the beginning.
We are not short on ideas, but we do need financial support to keep Crusading. Whether you are an artist, collector, enthusiast, or just believe that art makes the world a lovelier place, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution today.
