FOTM is the only biographical resource project of its kind in the country. The documentation, consisting of visual, written and oral history, is comprised of multiple projects linked by a common mission. The goal of FOTM is to demonstrate the full significance of the arts to society by bringing highly accomplished artists to the forefront of the community.
FOTM has two objectives: 1) to document and archive extraordinary artists and their work through photographic portraits, audio and video interviews and biographical research that encompass each artist's experiences, artistic reflections and development; and 2) to present this work to a broad public through extensive education outreach to all ages
