Our History

MIND THE ART ENTERTAINMENT
NEW YORK LLC


Mind The Art Entertainment was founded in New York City on March 7th, 2007 by Christian De Gré, Joe Kurtz, Ashley C. Williams and Alessio Cappelletti, four multi-disciplinary artists, who finally agreed on a singular principle put forth by our first Artistic Director. The principle was that "Art must remain a collaborative and ever evolving medium."  The idea was grounded in a commitment that as artists we must cease complaining about the difficulties posed by our industry but instead work together to self-produce original work.
