Throughout the evening, Weisman passionately discussed the city's need for a contemporary art museum. In the following weeks, the Mayor's Museum Advisory Committee was organized. The committee, led by William A. Norris, set about creating a museum from scratch, including locating funds, trustees, directors, curators, a gallery, and most importantly an art collection. That same year, Weisman and five other key local collectors signed an agreement whereby they would pledge chunks of their private collections, worth up to $6 million, "to create a museum of standing and repute."

From its inception, as a not for profit organization, Artcore has dedicated itself to the task of finding and exposing artists locally and internationally whose work shows dedication, excellence and originality. Artcore focuses on artists of all walks of life spurring the creativity of both emerging and established artists. Artcore's operative word has always been "opportunity," both for the artists, and for the community to have access to art. Artcore is committed to its mission of making art accessible without the constraints of the market economy. As such it exercises freedom of choice based strictly on quality and contribution to the community.
One of our strategies is to expand contact between visual artists regionally and internationally by seeking the artists’ involvement in our vision. Another strategy is to draw increasingly diverse audiences from the widest possible spectrum of our community. Mature developed artists will establish year-round art programs and workshops designed for children, youth and adults to discover visual arts and its core values.
Autonomie is an organic space for experimental projects in the arts. As a non-profit gallery our goal is to promote community building by cultivating an ongoing dialog about the arts with people from different economic, political and cultural backgrounds. Invitations to show at Autonomie are offered on a rotating basis to those individuals or collectives engaged in producing critical interventions in the field of contemporary art. Accepting the opportunity to show at Autonomie is only for individuals or groups that openly welcome questions about the context of their work, the general trajectory of their overture and the goals of their artistic practice. As such, Autonomie doesn't favor any particular medium or set of aesthetic criteria - all types of production are encouraged from the most immaterial of actions to every form of object based production.
