About new gen

New Generation Fine Arts Foundation (NewGen), a public charity, was established as a 501(c)(3), tax-exempt, non-profit organization. Kendall Owens created this organization to enhance awareness and respect for the arts in Metro-Detroit. Her mission is to give back to the community by educating and inspiring young artists like herself. NewGen’s purpose is to provide access to greater opportunities for the underserved, mentally ill,  and developmentally disabled while contributing to a flourishing, culturally aware, and artistically educated community.
