Mission Statement

Artadia’s mission is to encourage innovative practice and meaningful dialogue across the United States by providing visual artists in specific communities with unrestricted awards and a national network of support.

Description

Artadia was founded as The ArtCouncil in 1997 by investment banker and art collector Christopher E. Vroom. The first awards were given in the San Francisco Bay Area, where Vroom was living at the time. Chicago was added as a program city in 2001. In 2003, Artadia added Houston to its roster, Boston in 2007, and Atlanta in 2009. Once Artadia commits to a community, it runs the awards program every other year and co-sponsors public programs with a local institution. Started as an individual’s vision, Artadia’s base of support now includes private foundations, a national Board of Directors, a National Council, a Junior Council, and members who are active in supporting the core of creative culture: the individual artist. In addition to the individual artist awards, Artadia produces publications, exhibitions, and has an artist-in-residence program in Brooklyn, New York with partner organization ISCP (International Studio and Curatorial Program).
