Our Story

We form a women’s run organization of curators, producers and artists unified in our aspirations that the transformative lens of art should be placed in our everyday experience. Our access to influential artists, both local and international, gives NOW Art a significant edge in servicing the increasing needs of curating, producing, and expanding Public Art.

Impassioned with the vision of how inspiring art can be, we aim to increase the quality and vitality of Public Art, while striving to make more works available within our public landscape. Our supporters include community organizations, urban developers, property owners, civic entities, private collectors and artists for whom we broker site specific locations to help make their ideas possible. By combining forces alongside other not-for-profit organizations and influencers, we have created a dynamic and impressionable organization bringing a stronger public art presence to the city Los Angeles with emotionally evocative, culturally attuned, meaningful works.
