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.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas (1890 – 1998) penned books, articles and short stories over 80 years that influenced thinking on issues she was passionate about: suffrage and rights of women, racial justice and, most famously, the conservation and restoration of the Florida Everglades. Described as having "a tongue like a switchblade and the moral authority to embarrass" high officials, she became a force to reckon with all the while being a great read every time she published.
