ABOUT MUSIC IS ART

Music is Art is dedicated to creating opportunities to fuel the unifying power of music in our region.

Music is Art is a not-for-profit, federal 501c3 organization founded in 2003 by Goo Goo Dolls bassist and Buffalo resident, Robby Takac. Music is Art operates through a board of directors, staff, sponsors, and volunteers, as well as collaborations with several partner organizations. 

Music is Art is proud to enrich our community with access to music. It is our hope that we encourage people to find their musical voice, think about how music touches their lives, and most importantly think about the fact that...

music is art.
