About Us

Turning Thoughts Into Actions

Founded by Sara Rose Salih in 2021, The Usual Artspects is a non-profit organization where creativity meets healing. The proceeds from our art shows, vendor markets, concerts, and silent auctions go towards creating affordable and healing programs for women who have survived sexual assault and trauma.
