Established in 1971 as an independent organization to serve individual artists throughout the state, the mission of New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is to empower emerging artists and arts organizations across all disciplines at critical stages in their creative lives and professional/organizational development. In 2009, NYFA extended its programs and services throughout the United States and the
international community. With support from the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation, NYFA conducts the Immigrant Artist Program, which provides mentoring, exhibition and presentation opportunities, and information resources to immigrant artists in New York City. Through a combination of in-person and online initiatives, this program served over 5,000 individuals in the past year.
