We teach children, families, and seniors that art matters in our lives; it enriches and expands our worlds.

Thank you to all of our supporters for a great 2015.

Twelve years ago when I first became Executive Director, Barnsdall Arts /FOJAC served under 10,000 people. Our quality programs and exhibitions have expanded and developed substantially in the intervening years. In 2015 we served over 162,800 people throughout Los Angeles. An outstanding consultant is currently working with us to strategically plan improvements in our organizational and grant-writing capacity and to ensure sustainable growth in 2016.

Without your support we can't do it. Please join us donate by check or paypal on this website to make arts a meaningful reality for tens of thousands of young people in our city.
