With a mission to instill a Renaissance within the
Arts community and change global consciousness,
F.A.N. draws upon all types of Artists and Artisans
across the globe and will create projects – such as
the building of its foundation, brick-by-brick,
through a joint effort – drawing international
interest toward a focused goal. F.A.N.’s purpose
will be to create a public congregation in which
common goals and interests can be developed in a
performance and gallery space where improvisation
and collaboration are encouraged— a space where
All are welcome; the ultimate goal will be to
fulfill Van Gogh's elusive lifelong desire for
community among artists, a collaboration of dreams.
Art projects selected for sponsorship will be chosen
based upon their appeal to the base of human nature,
where religion and politics are given secondary
status, and their perceived effective nature on a
global stage with accessibility to the international
public— making a simple statement simply.
Breaking down barriers that education and
socio-economic factors have established over the
centuries, accessibility to the masses is of utmost
importance to F.A.N.'s mission.
Through such globally-accessible artwork, F.A.N.
hopes to instill a global dialogue that will
ultimately alter the manner in which humanity thinks
and expresses themselves, changing the basic ideas
of value and so forth. As important as the air we
breathe, and the water we drink, art, in all of its
various incarnations, needs to be embodied by All.
