About Rare Artist

The Rare Artist Contest was established in 2010 to exhibit the unique gifts of individuals affected by rare diseases and to promote the expression of their stories through art. All Rare Artist Awardees are presented checks and invited to speak during Rare Disease Week on Capitol Hill. Additionally, their
artwork is showcased throughout the year at various patient and biopharmaceutical conferences.

Our intention is to showcase the artwork and the artist. It is our hope that the works and personal stories celebrated by the Rare Artist program will help raise awareness about rare diseases and the rare disease community.

Mission is an online gallery dedicated to artists affected by a rare disease. creates a permanent, free, virtual space where “rare artists” can express themselves and submit their work for public viewing.
