ABOUT THE ART STORY FOUNDATION

THE PURPOSE:

The Art Story Foundation's official statement of purpose is to: "Educate, inform, and introduce people to modern art through speaker series, educational workshops, and online educational resources". We understand that modern art requires much from the viewer, but a large time commitment and some kind of a indoctrination into "the art world" should not be a prerequisite. Also, The Art Story is about ideas for people, not citations for academics. Read more on Our Approach.

THE ORGANIZATION and TEAM:

The Art Story Foundation is an educational 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2009. The organization is led by 4 senior personnel that are responsible for the everyday management and long-term planning. A staff of approximately 12 freelancers include content writers and researchers, art professors, graphic artists, and programmers that continue to create and publish content on a regular basis.

THE WEBSITE:

This website's mission is to make modern art more accessible and digestible to the general public by providing information that is easy-to-understand, professionally designed, and logically presented. The Art Story is continues to cover all the major movements, artists, and ideas in modern art. We are also providing coverage of the modern art exhibitions and events in the New York City area.

Founding Principles:

"The Art Story Foundation is a result of my interest in trying to understand the art that was all around me. After developing a serious interest in learning about modern art, I found the available sources of information too limited. Many excellent art books are too narrow in their scope, and are hard to reconcile with each other. Online, it was nearly impossible to find quality information that is organized in a consistent manner. I believe the Internet is the medium that can address all these problems, and bring art education into the 21st century. This website, and the Foundation as a whole, strive to achieve this goal."
- Michael Zurakhinsky
