The National Arts Program was established in 1985 by The National Arts Foundation to inspire, acknowledge and reward creative accomplishments throughout the nation. The program began as a pilot project in Philadelphia and has extended nationally to include over 90 exhibitions in more than 30 states. The concept of The National Arts Program is to provide an uninhibited opportunity for all people to present their talents, at whatever level, in a public exhibition, free to artists and the public.
