Traditional Fine Arts Organization (TFAO) is somewhat like the fine arts section of a large public library or a college or museum fine arts library. Physical libraries usually don't market themselves as much as commercial firms. They mainly work on expanding their collection and making it available to the public. Some may have employees devoted to public relations. Since TFAO is a volunteer-based organization, we don't employ public relations firms or have public relations employees.
Years ago TFAO conducted public relations work aimed at the media but discontinued it in favor of spending that amount of time and energy towards content development. That's been our main direction ever since.
People who wish to spread knowledge of American art may pass along TFAO's name to instructors, students, classmates, museum staff and docents. Our Institution Outreach Project is aimed at outreach to staff members of museums and instructors at colleges and universities.
Persons familiar with the media may contact news organizations to help spread the word about TFAO's services. Institutions with websites, or individuals with blogs, can bring tfaoi.org Web pages to people's attention by linking to URLs within TFAO's website. Tens of thousands of institutional Web pages and personal blog pages contain hyperlinks to individual TFAO pages.
Traditional Fine Arts Organization (TFAO) offers online the most thorough body of knowledge concerning American representational art through its publication Resource Library, plus projects, reports, studies and catalogues including:
For the past 19 years, all content has been presented to the public free of charge - and will continue on that basis permanently. TFAO is 100% non-commercial.
