Founding Members:

Founding Members are key partners in the next phase of IAM’s development. For those patrons who commit to supporting IAM with a gift of $2,000 or more, we offer a unique membership opportunity.  With your tax-deductible donation, you will receive:

 * A lifetime membership to International Artists Manifest.

 * An opportunity to attend and offer insight at our Annual Meeting.

 * Free admission to all IAM exhibitions and installations.

 * Invitations to Founding Member special events.

 * A lifetime of limited edition annual art correspondences.

Our priorities include: celebrating the acquisition of our inaugural collection, the works and ephemera of the internationally recognized figurative painter and mail artist Carlo Pittore; initiating a collaboration with the town of Bowdoinham to reestablish the Academy of Carlo Pittore as a thriving figurative arts studio, teaching environment, and artist residency program; fostering a solid network of artists and arts organizations locally, nationally, and internationally; championing artists’ rights, creating a first responder strategy for current issues as they arise; and providing fiscal sponsorship for artists. We will also build partnerships with established institutions and venues that have shown enormous commitment to artists- many of which were created by artists for fellow artists.
