Founded in 2010, the Adopt the Arts Foundation brings together well-known artists, public figures and the general public to save the arts in America’s public schools. Co-founders Abby Berman and Matt Sorum believe that it is morally and ethically incumbent upon the public-at-large to foster the creativity, dreams, hopes, and imaginations of our children. Adopt the Arts is dedicated to improving the academic performance of every child through the gift of making art and music available to public school students.
In 2011, Adopt the Arts chose Rosewood Avenue Elementary (West Hollywood, CA) as its pilot school, working directly with the principal and the booster club to ensure that the students receive exposure to all the arts disciplines, including music, dance, theater, and visual arts. Adopt the Arts is paying the salary of the music teacher and has outfitted a music room with donated keyboards, guitars and drums. In September 2012, Adopt the Arts donated 1,000 musical instruments (i.e. drum kits, keyboards, guitars, bass guitars) to Los Angeles elementary schools. With the help of the arts education branch of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), Adopt the Arts is continually identifying the most underserved schools in the district as it prepares for its next series of adoptions. Each school site is available to be “adopted” by anyone who wants to help—whether a business, a working artist, celebrity or public figure—to underscore the importance of community involvement.
