About The Art Story
Modern art insight
We are here to demystify Modern Art. Modern Art is about ideas, and we want to expose those ideas to the world.
The organization and team
The Art Story Foundation is an educational 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2009. The organization is led by 4 senior personnel that are responsible for the everyday management and long-term planning. A staff of approximately 12 freelancers include content writers and researchers, art professors, graphic artists, and programmers that continue to create and publish content on a regular basis.
"The Art Story Foundation is the result of my interest in trying to understand the art that was all around me. After developing a serious interest in learning about modern art, I found the available sources of information too limited. Many excellent art books are too narrow in their scope, and are hard to reconcile with each other. Online, it was nearly impossible to find quality information that is organized in a consistent manner."
"I believe the Internet is the medium that can address all these problems, and bring art education into the 21st century. This website, and the Foundation as a whole, strive to achieve this goal."
- Michael Zurakhinsky
