Artist Inc. (Artist International Connection, Inc.) is an artist community and production company on a quest to create and expand collaborations that enhance and promote artistic expression and opportunity. Our mission is to act as a resource for both emerging and seasoned artists for expanding production needs, public relations and contacts. By way of our services and programming, artists tap into resources and opportunities to expand their careers, gain experience, widen their audience base and connect with other artists. Through our presenting events the community benefits through a greater access to the arts, as we offer our productions at affordable prices and in non-traditional, easily-accessible spaces. Artist Inc. is a 501-C3, not for profit organization, founded in 2007.

The Reese Johanson Collective is artist inc’s multidisciplinary performing arts ensemble with a mission to challenge artists to work outside of their comfort zone, encourage them to engage with artists whom they might not normally, and collaboratively create works of performance that are innovative, poignant, risky, and human.  We invite artists outside of our company to work and perform with us and accordingly, we seek opportunities outside of our regular stomping grounds.

Reese Johanson | Executive Director

artist inc. was founded by Reese Johanson. Having produced and performed for over 20 years, she continually came up against one same obstacle. How can an artist be more easily exposed to new audiences and in new places?

Reese created artist inc. to act as a resource for both emerging and seasoned artists for the expansion of production needs, public relations and contacts.
