Company Overview


WhitePHOENIXarts is an art consulting and entertainment company that is focused on developing the arts within Columbus, Ohio. Founded in July 2018, WhitePHOENIXarts has been networking and partnering with local galleries, breweries, and restaurants. We host artist pop-up showcases to help promote local artists' talents to the populous. It is our goal to help grow the artistic community and educate the people on how to view and purchase art. 

One way that WhitePHOENIXarts does this is by having local artists teach art-related classes. Helping build the skills of our patrons and providing a fun and interactive way to approach the arts. We want people to see art as they understand music. You don’t have to fully understand what goes into the development of a piece. Just simply if you enjoy the peace and love it, then you should want to take it home.
