ABOUT THE ART IS GOOD FOUNDATION

The Art is Good program, about “ART & YOU,” began in 2008 as healing arts workshops for The David S. Zocchi Brain Tumor Center community, provided by Tim Kelly. The Art is Good philosophy is the embodiment of Tim's beliefs about art and life. He truly believes that everyone can create something and feel good about it.

The Art is Good Foundation is powered by founders, Gabrielle Nastuck and Tim Kelly, who have dedicated their lives to art. Each has benefited from the power of creativity and want to share it with others. In 2015, they met when Gabi brought Tim’s Puzzle Art Project to the Latrobe Art Center and community. The result was a lifetime friendship, 2,000+ amazing puzzle pieces created & exhibited in Latrobe and the creation of The Art is Good Foundation. Brooklyn, NYC-based with a satellite presence in Latrobe, PA; the Art is Good Foundation has a global vision for the art program about “ART” AND “YOU.” It is ARTSOLUTELY GOOD FOR EVERYONE.

ABOUT PUZZLE PROJECT

The “Puzzle Project” consists of thousands of 24"x 24" artistic puzzle pieces created in more than 30 states and more than 20 countries. The puzzle pieces are assembled together into a massive jigsaw puzzle art installation. People of all ages from corporations, galleries, museums, arts groups, schools and non-profit organizations have created puzzle artwork to help form this historic collaboration. It is a simple way for each of us to express ourselves or tell a story with art. You don’t have to be an artist to participate. There are no rules to how you make your puzzle piece. Like each of us, every puzzle piece is different. Together they create a large meaningful piece of collaborative art that is like nothing ever seen or exhibited.

EXPRESS YOURSELF

Each participant has their own individual creative experience making meaningful puzzle art. You can make your puzzle piece any way or about anything YOU want.

COLLABORATE WITH OTHERS

Artists work together and enjoy a shared creative experience. Businesses and organizations utilize the Puzzle Project for team building. Support groups utilize it for healing. Schools use it for learning.  Communities utilize it to connect and collaborate.

BE A PART OF SOMETHING BIG

Participants assemble their pieces locally and celebrate them together.  Then they become part of something big by sending their jigsaw art to NYC to join the thousands of puzzle pieces from around the world in the massive collaborative installation.
