Our Mission

Addressing Social and Environmental Justice Through the Arts

2B&2C: The Ken Cro-Ken Memorial Foundation cultivates and nurtures a thriving creative community engaged in interdisciplinary collaboration, experiential learning, and environmental activism through visual arts, music, and dance.

“To remain connected to Nature, a sense of play; and all that results from it…” – Ken Cro-Ken (1957-2020)

We at 2B&2C are dedicated to preserving the legacy of this remarkable ecosystem-painter, sculptor, and teacher, disseminating the Ken Cro-Ken Collection, and furthering Ken’s mission of promoting literacy through the arts.

We invite you to share and participate in Ken’s vision, to SEE and HEAR inspiration blossom and be creatively nourished in our Artspace.

Check out our Calendar of Events.
