SUPPORT US – The Institute for Art and Olfaction

Why support the IAO?

The Institute for Art and Olfaction is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a unique and singular mission – one of the only institutions of its kind. We are devoted to raising the visibility and access to olfactory arts at our home in in Los Angeles and beyond. Your fiscal support helps us achieve that mission by allowing us to initiate and support contemporary arts projects that utilize the medium of scent, by allowing us to provide accessible and affordable education in our experimental laboratory (and in partnership with institutions and community groups), and by allowing us to celebrate excellence in independent and artisan perfumery through our yearly award mechanism, The Art and Olfaction Awards.
