Announcing Friends of FRONT

September 17, 2018General

FRONT International is launching the Friends of FRONT, a three-year campaign to encourage individuals who were inspired by the Triennial to ensure its return in 2021. When you join Friends of FRONT, you are investing in the belief that art is a language the entire world can share. Art evokes passions, thoughts, and reactions. Art can bridge a divide, unite a nation, forge a dialogue. When you join Friends of FRONT you ensure that contemporary art has a home in Cleveland for years to come.

In addition to making a commitment to funding public art in Northeast Ohio, you’ll receive invitations to exclusive events, art openings, and lectures.
