What is POBA?

POBA is Where The Arts Live!

POBA | Where the Arts Live is a non-profit online hub that celebrates the creative works of exceptional contemporary artists – known and unknown – who died without recognition of the full measure of their talents or legacies. Crossing all genres and media, these works inspire and enliven us all.

POBA showcases, promotes and preserves the legacies of these artists through its displays, promotion, and sales. And POBA does more: Through tangible services POBA assists collectors, estates, and working artists in managing their collections for future preservation, viewing, and value.

POBA is where you can:

  • Store digital versions of creative legacies securely
  • Create and display portfolios of legacy artists on a DIY basis or with POBA’s help
  • Sell/Buy original art works and museum-quality limited edition prints of works displayed on POBA
  • Obtain personalized Concierge Services to get creative works in all fields organized, preserved, digitized, valued, completed, marketed, and sold
  • Support POBA’s non-profit mission by helping others while you get the help you need
