What is POBA?
POBA IS WHERE THE ARTS LIVE!
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. Across genres and media, these works inspire and enliven us all. POBA showcases, promotes, and preserves the legacies of these artists through its displays and promotions on our site. And, through tangible services, POBA assists collectors, estates, and working artists in managing their collections for future preservation, viewing, and value.

Art With HeartJanuary 31, 2018
Many artists have used hearts as a visual image of love, whimsy, sorrow and more. On POBA, this is more than a visual metaphor. “Art with Heart” – the urge to create, enjoy, collect and preserve art – is the motivating force behind POBA. After five years of taking POBA from a kernel of an idea to fruition today, we return to the impulse that led a family to create POBA: an act of the heart.
