MARN has an extensive menu of services and programs that are designed to help individual artists enhance their ability to make a living with their art. Its Salon program connects individual artists with museums, galleries, art dealers, patrons, and collectors. MARN also organizes networking opportunities so that artists have the chance to meet and collaborate with other artists. The Arts Mentor program pairs experienced artists with those who are interested in strengthening their skills and their ability to market and sell their work.
