Your Support Can Make a Difference!

Marcel Duchamp said, “I don’t believe in art.  I believe in the artist.” We agree! Creative communities thrive when artists are working and doing what they do best.  A gift to Art Without Limits (AWoL) helps today’s artists in a variety of ways. Your contribution allows us to connect artists of all ages with mentors, expand their knowledge of the art market, and help them become fiscally prepared for the future.

Our motto is GIVING BEGETS GIVING.  We help artists help themselves, but we can’t do it without YOU.  Thank you for believing in our work and helping artists thrive!
