Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Art is the child of Nature in whom we trace the features of the Mother's face.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Our mission

To extol the virtues of the Greek Goddess, Artemis, through creating, erecting, and maintaining public art, monuments, and works, specifically with the charitable purpose of elevating the status of women, children, minorities, nature, and animals.

Part of our inspiration

Katsina beckons the power and beauty of nature in female form, looks to the sky for her inspiration, and needs no intermediary to express her wisdom, intellect, grace, and gifts. 


Katsina is the Sacred Dancer.
