Who Are We?
Youth Arts Forum is a not-for-profit 501c3 charity organization founded in 1990 by Barry Salottolo. Youth Arts Forum was founded as an alternative to the decline of the more formal school art and music programs that were being eliminated at the time, and continues to be eliminated in even greater numbers today. Youth Arts Forum provides talented young artists and performers with a healthy and engaging outlet that allows them to express their creativity in art and musical performances. We at Youth Arts Forum believe that this program provides the vehicle to “unite the youth of the world through the arts”.
Youth Arts Forum supports visual and performing artists to help them express themselves, enhance their self esteem, and keep their very real and personal dreams alive.
Youth Arts Forum is accepting donations to help fund concerts, artist sponsorships and productions, framing and displays, as well as all expenses that are associated with supporting and producing the talents of the young artist. Please click the donate button if you would like to make a donation.
- For the performing artist, YAF has held several Rock for a Cure “Kids Helping Kids” concerts in New York City, New Jersey, Vermont and at 32 Simon Malls throughout the East Coast. One was at the famous East 13th Street Theater and several recent concerts were held at the Studio at Webster Hall. YAF pays for the venues, marketing, production, public relations, as well as local and regional advertising. When possible, YAF also helps to pay for travel and lodging of many of the young performing artists who participate in our concerts.
- For the visual artist, YAF distributes arts supplies to those who may not be able to afford them. YAF collects and frames for display much of the artwork received from its members. The organization has supported numerous gallery shows that were designed to professionally display and support the young artists from the local areas and from across the country. Several of these shows were held in the prestigious NOHO Art Gallery on Mercer Street in New York City. The artwork is \displayed on our award-winning websites www.youthartsforum.org. and www.youthartsinfo.com. This unique arrangement affords the young artists’ a national and international venue that is exclusively dedicated to the Young Artist and his or her work. It is fast becoming a beacon of the best young artists have to offer.
We are excited and delighted to have you come and grow with us. Welcome!
