The Foundation

Mission

Founded in August 2012 by the internationally famed child prodigy artists Victoria Yin and Zoe Yin as a 501 (c) 3 public nonprofit organization, our foundation believes that artistic spirit is a creative and positive force in our society, and that spirit needs to be fostered at a young age. We call to all educational, cultural and political institutions across the globe to help nurture that artistic spirit, and to let our children’s imagination be free and soar.
