Our Story.

Moderner Staat also respects and supports creative people in our community who work tirelessly to perfect their craft, often for little more than the gratification they receive from an audience.

This phase of Moderner Staat growth is dedicated to building a resource for artists to turn to in order to live productive lives. When people talk about low-income families, they forget they’re often talking about those who make our lives richer with their artistic gifts. But we are not excluding those who simply enjoy the arts.

Our non-profit organization began as a networking project for emerging artists. Social events were built around collaborative arts shows designed to break down imagined walls between art genres.

Moderner Staat is a place to find out what’s happening in our arts community, issues that are of importance to people in creative fields, whose work is available for purchase and where to go for art on the cutting edge.
