OUR MISSION IS TO MAKE ART ACCESSIBLE TO EVERYONE

IPaintMyMind is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and we connect the public with great emerging art. 

IPMM isn’t just a website, an arts organization, or a gallery: we’re all of those things.

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.

We work to provide the virtual and physical spaces that enable public art awareness, education, and patronage. We appreciate art & music in all mediums & genres, with a focus on Affordable & Emerging Art.
