Founded in 1997 in the early evening of the postmodern day, Dactyl Foundation supports an aesthetic that is informed by science, history, and philosophy and that takes into consideration both the intellectual and intuitive responses to art. This mission guides our visual art exhibitions, readings, screenings, and performances, which are supplemented with research, conferences and lectures. Dactyl brings the sciences back into the arts and the arts back into the sciences.

Dactyl Foundation for the Arts & Humanities Inc. is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
