The Nu-Art Series is a 501(C)(3) not for profit arts corporation
operating from the city of St. Louis, in the state of Missouri. We
have been incorporated in Missouri since 1996 but we have been doing
art programming since 1979, when we presented our first programs at
the New College of California, in San Francisco.
Since our incorporation in Missouri we have been actively working
in the regional and local arts communities organizing and presenting
visual arts exhibitions, musical performances, and poetry readings.
Our mission is to create, present, and provide access to the work
of all artists, and to establish a system which educates the community
about its art and artists, and preserves in the consciousness of the
community the concept of art, artwork, and artists as an integral
part of the community. However, we do place specific emphasis on artists
of color (African, Asian, Latin, and Native Americans), other minorities,
and women. By doing so we aim to advance the public's awareness of
the accomplishments of these important artists. We are dedicated to
making the visual arts, music, and literature created by these artists
available for the community to see and experience. By presenting visual
arts exhibitions in combination with music performances, poetry and
prose readings in our exhibition and performance facility, The Metropolitan
Gallery, we hope to heighten the community's awareness of how the
arts interact and intertwine; how they influence each other and how
they influence the community. As part of our programming we also hold
lectures, art workshops and demonstrations in the Metropolitan Gallery.
The Nu-Arts Series also has a strong and varied history promoting
arts education by bringing artists together with students and educators
in local community schools for mutual awareness and cultural enrichment.
We are organized and operate exclusively for charitable purposes
as described in IRS 501(C)(3) regulations.
