Art Happens

Art Happens is a unique crowdfunding platform, designed specifically for museums and galleries, that puts you at the heart of every campaign. Choose a cause that inspires you, and your donation will earn you an exclusive reward. Your support can help bring exciting projects to life and, unlike any other platform, we send every single penny directly to the museum or gallery. Together, we can make art happen.
