Real Art Ways is an alternative multidisciplinary arts organization that presents and supports contemporary artists and their work, facilitates the creation of new work and creatively engages, builds and informs audiences and communities.

Real Art Ways is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that depends on the support of our members and community to continue delivering on our mission of innovative exhibitions and programming.



We all spend a lot of time in front of screens. Phones, laptops, desktops, televisions, tablets – they are ubiquitous and consuming. Screens link us, and they also keep us apart.

A central idea of Real Art Ways is that it is a place where people connect with each other.

Even as we make the online experience better, we have in mind an underlying goal: we want you here, with friends (real, not virtual), seeing people (in the flesh), experiencing new art, music, movies, performance, and ideas, hanging out, talking, catching up and adding your own particular perspective and voice to this mix of humanity.

With all we offer on walls, stages, and yes, screens, ultimately it is people, our conversations and connections, giving Real Art Ways meaning.

Hope to see you here soon.
