Updated: Apr 28, 2021
Patty Narozny spearheads with Jim Sobczak this 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization with a laser focus on her mission: enrich the community through the power of art. With a unique background in corporate finance and as the former sales director for NBC’s affiliate outlet in Detroit, she is dedicated to removing the barriers that prevent artists from selling directly to patrons and collectors. Utilizing her extensive experience in media relations, Patty brings national attention to the multitude of open air shows and competitions that her non-profit organizes. Reaching a hugely diverse audience, IA&E encourages artistic expression in each community it touches.
