About Us

“The mission of the Friends of the Beat Museum is to promote, inspire and celebrate a life-long love of learning and growth through creative expression enabling individuals to realize their full potential while creating positive change for themselves, the lives of others and the world.”

We are dedicated to assisting people to know, speak and live their truth by providing a supportive environment and opportunities to bring creative expression to life. We accomplish this by offering classes, contests, performances, outreach programs, publishing opportunities and a venue for creating a community center that stimulates individual creativity, intellectual promise and motivation, which opens one’s eyes to the possibilities of achievement and the joys of creative expression. Our projects and programs enrich lives and help individuals to have an impact on the present and the future.

The Foundation for Creative Expression (dba Friends of the Beat Museum) is a registered 501(c)(3) public charity. IRS ID #74-3198671
