KiptonART is determined to live up to its mission statement of Giving Artists Access by getting artists more exposure through various media outlets, high profiled events and personal portfolios. Created in March of 2009, the KiptonART Foundation facilitates the appreciation and endowment of the visual arts and music through the support of emerging talent and educational programs for children. The Foundation's main operation is to promote artist-in-residency programs for struggling artists by providing stipends for them to create and sustain their work, all the while raising their profiles. The Foundation's resources are gleaned from the general public, directly and indirectly, and other fundraising enterprises.
