Jamie Wards, a national entrepreneur day fundraiser for the National Endowment for the Arts, is now the first national artist to be featured in an artist’s portfolio.
Wards has created a website, art-in-the-works.com, that features a list of artists he has created for the gallery, including Miley Cyrus, Nick Jonas, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Nick Offerman, Sarah McLachlan, John Legend, the Who, and more.
The site is open to artists of all ages.
Warts said in an interview that he wants to “start a conversation about how artists can do things that are really cool.”
The artist, who launched his own website, artsintheworks.net, earlier this month, said that the platform was designed to help artists get their work noticed and to connect them to a broader audience.
The National Endowments for the Art and the Humanities is a government agency that is responsible for funding and managing the arts in the United States.
Warts is the first artist to receive a grant from the agency, according to the New York Times.
Wands, a New York native, is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
The New York City native is also the founder of the artist collective, Artis, which offers live performances and performances by musicians and musicians’ artists.
He has also worked as a producer and director of the film, The New Wave, a feature film that starred Miley.
