What do YOU know about...
ART4GOOD?

Art 4 Good Foundation, Inc., is located in Downtown Palm Springs in the historic district; within the former Clark Gable Estate. Open to the public on weekends, art “speaks”. Art speaks in 41 languages. Tourists and locals alike can view hundreds of works of art by Renowned and Collectible Artists from all over the world. *see collective artist credits that follow herein.

Admission is free, and our museum space, consisting of three galleries, is also made available, at no cost, for viable local charities who wish to host fundraising events.

"Art Speaks": “Inspiring change, with every brush stroke”, it is the mission of the Art4Good Foundation to enlighten the public to the real value of art and creativity. Art is subjective, yet it requires no translator. Art speaks in every language, and can be utilized as a strategic "tool" to engage interest and commonality via education, availability, and exchange of ideas worldwide. Art provides good will, emanating from the United States, throughout the entire world; not unlike the popularity of our best exports of music, films and automobiles, we intend, in the near future, to focus and enhance our mission to "export culture", sharing the works of international artists, beyond our borders.

“Art heals.”: Founding Chairperson, Wendie Busig-Kohn suffers from Systemic Lupus, a crippling disease that was diagnosed in 1992, when doctors told her to “get her affairs in order”. After several strokes and seizures, she chose to eliminate most, if not all of her prescriptions and discovered that when creating, the left brain shifting to the right, her pain would disappear, if only for a little while, when painting. As a result, she became an advocate for “Art and Healing” and published a book of the same title.


ART4GOOD Foundation, Inc. provides a multitude of social media outlets for burgeoning artists to showcase their works, at NO cost. ART4GOOD also sponsors “The Artist In You” blog, where artists can engage others in the inspiration behind their works, and enjoy reading additional creative posts, including, but not limited to poetry and music.

To date, we have also published seven ART and ART/Poetry books, to enhance the stature of burgeoning artists as "published artists". Costs for publication have been paid entirely by ART4GOOD Foundation, Inc., and proceeds from sales are donated to support ARTS in SCHOOLS programs.

ART4GOOD has also created videos to showcase new artists' works, showcased on The Artist In You TV Channel on You Tube. Art4Good created The Artist In You TV channel on You Tube, which offers thousands of videos for the public to find including educational, creative, and inspirational videos along with full length movies and music videos too.

In summary, it is the mission of the ART4GOOD Foundation, Inc.
to communicate, inspire, and support the ever changing world of art,
via education by visualization and participation.


ARTISTS GIVE BACK: "Helping Burgeoning Artists Help themselves and others":The concept of Philanthropic Marketing was the premise of Ms. Busig-Kohn’s participation and presentation back in 1995, when invited to The State Of The World Forum, by then President Mikhail Gorbachev. Advocating that all primary brands “identify” with charities was, in fact, her idea.
Since that time, thousands of celebrities have also added their support to this concept, and thousands of fundraising projects were enhanced by their participation. In contrast, and substantiated by the NEA, statistics prove that the majority of visual artists in America today, live well below the poverty line. However, our statistics prove that when artists establish their own “philanthropic brand”, it enhances their sales and underscores success in their field.
