Because We Believe Art is Every Breath We Take
At AAAF we honor great artists, both contemporary and historical, and we will continue to honor future generations of artists. An ongoing project, AAAF focuses on highlighting LGBTQ artists and other minorities. Our mission is to discover, inspire, and showcase artists and their work in a wide range of styles and media. By doing so, we inspire artists and non-artists alike to embrace art and culture within their communities.
AAAF started as SYWNYC in 2012
We have been supporting great artists since 2002 and will be continue supporting future generations of artists.
Artist Stella Lillig’s firm conviction is that artists together can make big changes to the world around us with art. With art, we can awaken our imaginations and creative minds. We can make the impossible POSSIBLE. And most importantly, we can continue sharing this vision with the younger generations of artists and creative
We invite you, patrons and artists, to join us on this journey to support up-and-coming artists, especially those in the LGBTQ community. By doing so, we are motivating young artistic minds and guiding them into the wonderful world of creation.
We must strive to make this happen. Let us make it our mission to share this vision to our younger generations.
