Art Guardian is dedicated to the preservation of the arts in cultures with crafting traditions in danger of fading into history and those arts that are seldom acknowledged.

Art is a reflection of who we are as humans.

Art tells the story of who we are together culturally...

And who we are as individual beings.

Sometimes unforeseen circumstances endanger our artistic traditions.

So we must work to ensure that our artistic inheritance is preserved and maintained through collaboration, education, and promotion.

Art Guardian - Project Alpha is dedicated to the preservation of the arts in cultures with arts traditions in danger of disappearing and folk crafts that are seldom acknowledged.

Through the execution of collaborative arts projects, emphasis is placed on the fact that the potential loss of various artistic traditions is at the expense of us all; not just one specific group of people.

$10,000 in funding is needed for several program components: Incidentals 11% Exhibitions 17% Art Supplies 22% Education 14% Travel 36% • Travel to and from project sites • Art supplies • Creation of educational materials • Exhibition of collaborative artworks alongside traditional cultural works.

We must come together as a world community to secure our art legacy for generations to come.

My name is Tracie Thornton and I'm an artist. During my travels I've had the privilege to be exposed to many different cultures and their respective artistic traditions. I've been some places where indigenous arts were all but fading and the idea for Art Guardian was born. Not only am I an artist with extensive non-profit experience but I have a profound and deep respect for cultures other than my own. I believe there is a lot to be learned from these art traditions that we may not hear about as much as others. They need to be given a voice and I am willing to work to make sure these cultures are seen and heard.
