In 1965, a group of extraordinary women established the Forward Arts Foundation in Atlanta, Georgia. Their steadfast mission to promote and support the visual arts in metro Atlanta continues to this day. These distinguished arts patrons, whose dynamic leadership was matched by their determination, transformed the garage of the Swan House estate into a restaurant, gift shop, and, in 1984, an art gallery. Throughout its history, the Forward Arts Foundation has raised significant funds in support of the visual arts and has created an indelible mark on Atlanta’s arts landscape.
