POBA | Where the Arts Live is a non-profit online hub that celebrates the creative works of exceptional contemporary artists – known and unknown – who died without recognition of the full measure of their talents or legacies. Crossing all genres and media, these works inspire and enliven us all.
POBA showcases, promotes and preserves the legacies of these artists through its displays, promotion, and sales. And POBA does more: Through tangible services POBA assists collectors, estates, and working artists in managing their collections for future preservation, viewing, and value.
POBA is where you can:

Helen Corning wore a pin on her lapel til the day she died that said: "Art Saves Lives." She understood what many in current times do not grasp fully: Art is vital to our well-being, our ability to understand each other, find common purpose, share our greatest beauty and our most troubling pain, and fuel the creative economy, materially and spiritually. We remember her commitment and wisdom as we mark Arts Advocacy Week / Arts Action Summit in Washington, DC and learn more about how we can take action to keep the arts alive in these challenging times.
