With offices in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami and Chicago, Gen Art’s goal is to provide emerging talent with access to the art and entertainment industries that often seem impossible to break into.

I, personally have had the opportunity to intern for Gen Art’s fashion department this past summer in New York City, and can attest to the fact that they work very hard, and are extremely passionate about helping up and coming talent in various industries, achieve success. They become a mentor to all emerging talent, providing them with the tools and advise needed to achieve great success in their field. They also produce killer events that will blow your mind!
