This new, refreshed image is the reflection of the natural progression of the evolution of Americans for the Arts, through the spirit of our staff and leadership.
As it is a natural process of evolution and growth, an organization’s image needs to reflect its mission and values. Through the transformation ignited through the SRP, we felt that our new focus and spirit was not visually represented by the current Americans for the Arts logo. Hence, we needed to also evolve our visual identity to become an extension of our organization’s brand promise to serve and advocate equitably for the power of the arts in all communities in the U.S.
This image delivers a free-flowing line which is strongly associated with the idea of infinity, as a continuous state of movement, creation, and evolution. This image is flexible, adaptable, agile, and transformative. It represents unity, connectivity, diversity, inclusion, with a touch of vulnerability that comes from self-expression, honesty, and transparency, which are some of the emotions and values strongly expressed by staff during our SRP meetings that needed to guide Americans for the Arts.
With the appropriate methodical process in place, Americans for the Arts expects to be adopting a refreshed image in early 2023.
