Who We Are
IPaintMyMind (IPMM) is a nonprofit arts organization whose mission is to make art accessible to all communities. An online arts publication, and an organization offering programs & services we’re all of those things.
We work to provide the virtual and physical spaces that enable public art awareness. We specialize in affordable & emerging visual art, with a focus on illustration, collage, mixed media, & photography screen prints & giclees. We take pride in supporting artists, communities, and businesses in their efforts to make art a viable avenue for engagement & collaboration.
Shared Walls™ is our hallmark arts program in which we transform spaces both for businesses and the public through temporary art exhibitions that focus on emerging & affordable artwork. Revenue from private exhibitions fund FREE exhibitions at parks, libraries, schools, and community centers; spaces that have the need for art but don’t have the budget.
Who We Need
We need smart, positive, inquisitive, focused, personable, fun, badass, self-starters. No twiddling of thumbs is allowed. We want people who create solutions and thinks on their feet, not someone who drags them.
We need young people who are willing to take the ball and run with it. We need someone who can think, host, help, & most importantly learn.
We need people who want to learn new skills across a wide range of areas - curation, editorial, email marketing, art framing, outreach, program development, artist relations, and more.
Perhaps most importantly, we need adults who relate openly, honestly, and proactively.
Communication, positivity, and initiative is everything.
