The guiding inspiration behind the FAR is to create a space where multiple mediums can interact. We believe that collaboration fosters artistic creativity, growth and development. The FAR cultivates, promotes and offers programming from diverse backgrounds and celebrates the unique outcomes that artistic alliances yield. 

Whether it is an Argentine Tango performed to the backdrop of contemporary photographypoetry reading inspired by works on exhibit in Pictura Gallery or a community project creating art with tape, we embrace the unexpected outcomes and dialogues that these pairings bring to light. We hope you will join us on our mission to fill this space with creative collaborations and unique experiences. If you have an idea for an art collaboration or are looking for a venue for art programming, please contact info@​thefar.​org.
