“Nonprofit organizations ask a lot from artists, and they ask often, so when I founded this institution with artist Glenn Kaino, it was always a very personal goal of ours to one day be able to give back to artists with the same kind of generosity that helped make this space a reality,” said Cesar Garcia, founder and director of the Mistake Room.
