The Art Story is an educational 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2009 to demystify Modern Art and further art appreciation.

Michael Zurakhinsky - Founder and President

"After developing a serious interest in understanding and appreciating Modern Art, I found the available sources of information far too limited. Many excellent art books are too narrow in their scope, and are hard to reconcile with each other. On the internet, it was nearly impossible to find quality information organized in a consistent manner."

"I believe the internet can help us address all these issues, and bring art education into the 21st century. Modern Art is about ideas that should be exposed to the world, and this website and the organization as a whole strive to achieve this goal."
- Michael Zurakhinsky (Founder)
