Access Arts, Inc. (publishers of ArtDeadline.Com) has been dedicated to world wide distribution
of information for artists and contemporary visual arts
institutions since 1994. Our publications span subscription

Arts® believes that the arts is an important and innate part
of the human experience, it enriches our personal life, and
the life of our communities. Without "art", without an
avenue to express our most basic needs and share in it's
community, we cannot fully develop as a person nor as a
culture. Insofar that barriers and exclusion from such
experiences exist as a result of prejudice, economic
factors, environmental and/or behavioral conditions, we feel
a special responsibility as a member of the art community to
provide support for initiatives that "makes the arts
accessible for all".
