FMC, PAFA launches art initiative to promote cultural events
FMC | PAFA Art Initiative is a unique community partnership that is designed to promote culture and the arts through a series of programs and events.

PHILADELPHIA, US: FMC Corporation (FMC) and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) launched the FMC | PAFA Art Initiative, a unique community partnership that is designed to promote culture and the arts through a series of programs and events. The first exhibition, entitled Way of Light, features student artwork prominently displayed on several floors of FMC's new headquarters at FMC Tower.

Throughout the year, the initiative will include opportunities to meet the artists, student scholarships, best-of-show selection events with employees, artwork purchase options, and similar programs and events.

"Bringing art into the building is not only beautiful and decorative, but it creates a stimulating workplace for all of our employees. Art has a transformative power that can enable creativity to flourish and therefore provide an invaluable quality for people regardless of occupation or discipline," said Mark Douglas, president of agricultural solutions.

“The new initiative is an opportunity to encourage the promotion, expansion and application of opportunities for the art community," said Brigham. "I'm thrilled to see this vision come to life for our artists,” said David Brigham, PAFA president and CEO.

"This partnership allows me and other PAFA students to showcase our work in a different environment. I look forward to working with you all, and I hope that our work will have a lasting, positive impact,” added Liza Samuel, PAFA student and art curator of the Way of Light exhibition,
