Fresco Exchange is an “intercambio artistico” that promotes and connects artists from Latin America and the US through creative programs and artistic interventions. We believe art can serve as a tool to travel, learn and experience new cultures. Our resources help many artists transcend socio-political boundaries, which can prevent individuals from traveling freely across nations. We help our diverse network of artists share their visions with broader audiences and expand their creative presence internationally. By hosting residencies for public art projects across countries, we can also inspire our local communities with new ways of creative thinking.

Fresco has organized 5 exhibits with 60+ artists, starting at the Cambridge Innovation Center in the US in 2016, and leading to the Ministry of Culture in Cali, Colombia in 2017. We’ve also hosted 3 artists in Colombia to participate in the Muro al Barrio project, an intervention to transform areas of Cali through urban art, research and community engagement. In Fall 2018, we're thrilled to welcome four artists to the US, and we're excited to see what comes next.
