An initiative of the Commission on the Arts

Mixtape is a multimedia gallery developed by the Academy’s Commission on the Arts. Members of the Commission and the Academy contributed poems, stories, songs, videos, and visual art to meet people wherever and whenever they want to encounter art. We hope visitors will enjoy, share, and return to Mixtape for art and inspiration.

Commission on the Arts

The Commission - drawing on the expertise of its members who are artists, scholars, activists, and leaders, as well as the input of people across the country who participated in listening sessions - dedicated itself to recognizing and supporting the essential role of the arts and artists in American life.
