PHILADELPHIA ARTS CLUB becomes AN INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS
Side Arts’ public relations platform helps visual artists and crafter communities worldwide. It is based out of Philadelphia, PA.
Starting in 2006, Side Arts Founder, Todd Hestand, started a neighborhood club of visual artists with regular meetings, BBQ’s, and Friday night karaoke. A common challenge was the need to find trusted opportunities to exhibit and sell creative works. Each person spent much time online, often duplicating the research of friends and colleagues.
Side Arts was developed as a way for the group to share quality opportunities. Other non-local visual artists discovered the service and requested to join. As the number of members grew, businesses, non-profits, and promoters began to express interest in posting opportunities directly to the site to extend their reach.
Side Arts relaunched in 2011 to focus on delivering trusted, high-quality requests for proposals, exhibitions, and vendor events from businesses and organizations around the world as well as recruit top-level visual artists. Today, over 200 new artist members join monthly and listings represent opportunities from over 50 countries.
Todd Hestand, Founder, Side Arts, is an artist, entrepreneur, and business adviser. He has over fifteen years experience providing executive-level recruitment services for organizations in the creative economy, public arts programs, and Fortune 1000 companies. His previous experience includes individual consulting, teaching courses, and developing programs for entrepreneurially-minded artists.
