    Our Mission

    Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation (Rush Arts) is dedicated to providing underserved youth with contemporary art education, and developing and supporting artists, curators and new audiences. Rush was founded in 1995 by three brothers: artist and activist Danny Simmons, media mogul Russell Simmons and Joseph Simmons (“Rev Run” of Run-DMC).
