Artfront Galleries became a New Jersey Nonprofit Corporation on April 29, 2016 and as of May 9th the IRS has recognized us as a 501(3)(c). This is important milestone which will better position us to continue our mission of “activating vacant spaces with artistic vision”. We will no longer require a fiduciary partner as we apply for grants to fund our projects. Also any monies contributed to Artfront Galleries by organizations or individuals is tax deductible.
We have always operated on a strictly not for profit basis. However, the basics to mount a successful show – promotional materials, gallery supplies, liability insurance, to say nothing about the requisite “cheap white wine” – are not free. Now that we can develop a a comprehensive funding strategy look for Artfront Galleries to bring more high quality art to the under served neighborhoods of Newark and its environs.
