StoriesToArt supports artists and promotes arts education nationwide. We welcome distinguished artists from every field, and recent art school graduates are encouraged to apply. Artists receive a 60% commission and the opportunity for more work, if desired, by becoming StoriesToArt Gives Back artists.apply to exhibit Application Guidelines

StoriesToArt gives 5% of its profits back to support arts education through its StoriesToArt Gives Back program. The program’s goal is to award grants to public and non-profit schools in order for them to hire StoriesToArt artists to come to their schools and turn their schools' stories into art.
