Research Center • Promoting Festival of Arts, History & Education

In 2011, foaNORTH research and preservation facility became home to the FOA Permanent Art Collection and Festival archives.  The program at foaNORTH is making it possible for the Festival to consolidate all of its important historical resources and be able to eventually publish a comprehensive account of its history and legacy as the premier arts organization in the region.

Selected artworks from the collection are presented in themed exhibits at foaSOUTH as well as loaned out to museums and institutions for specific exhibitions advancing cultural history and understanding.
