GIVING BACK too!

ARTISTS GIVE BACK:  "Helping Burgeoning Artists Help themselves and others":The concept of Philanthropic Marketing was the premise of Ms. Busig-Kohn’s participation and presentation back in 1995, when invited to The State Of The World Forum, by then President Mikhail Gorbachev.  Advocating that all primary brands “identify” with charities was, in fact,  her idea.

 Since that time, thousands of celebrities have also added their support to this concept, and thousands of fundraising projects were enhanced by their participation. 

 In contrast, and substantiated by the NEA, statistics prove that the majority of visual artists in America today, live well below the poverty line.  However, our statistics prove that when artists establish their own “philanthropic brand”, it enhances their sales and underscores success in their field.

 "Art Speaks": “Inspiring change, with every brush stroke”, it is the mission of the Art4Good Foundation to enlighten the public to the real value of art and creativity.  Art is subjective, yet it requires no translator.  Art speaks in every language, and can be utilized as a strategic "tool" to engage interest and commonality via education, availability, and exchange of ideas worldwide.  Art provides good will, emanating from the United States, throughout the entire world; not unlike the popularity of our best exports of music, films and automobiles, we intend, in the near future, to focus and enhance our mission to "export culture", sharing the works of international artists, beyond our borders.

 “Art heals.”:  Founding Chairperson, Wendie Busig-Kohn suffers from Systemic Lupus, a crippling disease that was diagnosed in 1992, when doctors told her to “get her affairs in order”.  After several strokes and seizures, she chose to eliminate most, if not all of her prescriptions and discovered that when creating, the left brain shifting to the right, her pain would disappear, if only for a little while, when painting.  As a result, she became an advocate for “Art and Healing” and published a book of the same title.

 ART4GOOD Foundation, Inc. provides a multitude of social media outlets for burgeoning artists to showcase their works, at NO cost. ART4GOOD also sponsors “The Artist In You” blog, where artists can engage others in the inspiration behind  their works, and enjoy reading additional creative posts, including, but not limited to poetry and music. 

To date, we have also published seven ART and ART/Poetry books, to enhance the stature of burgeoning artists as "published artists".  Costs for publication have been paid entirely by ART4GOOD Foundation, Inc., and proceeds from sales are donated to support ARTS in SCHOOLS programs.  Previously, we sponsored several underpriviledged children to attend Summer Art Conservatory classes in Palm Springs.

 ART4GOOD has also created videos to showcase new artists' works, showcased on The Artist In You TV Channel on You Tube.   Art4Good created The Artist In You TV channel on You Tube, which offers thousands of videos for the public to find including educational, creative, and inspirational videos along with full length movies and music videos too.

In summary, it is the mission of the ART4GOOD Foundation, Inc. to communicate, inspire, and support the ever changing world of art,

via education by visualization and participation.

    THE ART OF GIVING BACK! Save The Dates! September 1-7th!!

    When the Founder of ART4GOOD Foundation, Inc. began her mission to "inspire change with every brush stroke", by creating and hosting on-line charity auctions, she never thought she would become the top selling artist!  In fact, she never perceived herself as an  artist!

    After the death of her mother, she had this idea; determined to market Fine Art and continue in her mom's footsteps of supporting as many viable charities as possible.  For several years, she collected works from all over the world, works that have been showcased and applauded in the most famous museums and galleries.

    In 2011, she suffered a mild stroke, leaving her left side totally paralysed.  Depression set in, as she "felt useless".  Normally, she volunteered at least 100 hours each week, to this mission.

    Determined to inspire her to try something new, I went shopping for a wide variety of art supplies.  It did not matter how, it only mattered that she would simply play with colors and maybe even forget about the pain for a while.

    Three years later, she became the best selling artist on ART4GOOD Auctions!  "My early works were really horrible", she recalls.  "But, I did discover that when I immersed myself into creativity, I forgot about the pain.  I learned that by shifting into more right brain activity while painting, I found a sanctuary, a retreat from pain!", said Wendie.  She became an advocate for the "art of healing".  

    Soon thereafter, her works were also published in a series of books; eight in total, also an effort to raise awareness and contribute to various causes.  Her poetry was also featured in five of those books too!

    In 2014, she began to design for "OFF THE WALLS" Wearable Art and more!  Her design collection, now planned for its 2015 debut, now includes:  Art Tees, Shift Dresses, Handbags, Watches, Rockin' Shirts, Scarves, Skirts, Kimonos, Home Decor Items,  and Beach/Yacht wear too!

    SHOW! SHOW! SHOW?

    Well, miracles do happen, but Wendie Busig-kohn still suffers from Systemic Lupus and Fibromyalgia.  "The ole gal just doesn't go out anymore", she will tell you.  "My focus is to do what I can, whenever I can, via social media".   

    Can you blame me for insisting that we, finally, do a "ONE WOMAN AUCTION"?

    We're on!  From September 1st through September 7th, everyone is invited to a very special auction event!  777, Seven hundred, seventy seven offerings of Wendie's creativity in a multitude of forms will be available!

    Are YOU in?  We hope everyone who reads this blog post will be there to support "the best selling artist to date" on ART4GOOD Auctions, who has given back so much!  It's her time to shine!

    Thank You!
