The Flat Iron Artists Association (FIAA) claims to represent the interests of the artists in the Flat Iron Building but holds no elections.
The FIAA collects money from sponsors and at the door in the name of the artists but do not disclose how the money is used.
The FIAA blatantly disregards and ignores approaches from resident artists in the building with valid opinions.
The FIAA controls selective dissemination of information about shows, sponsors and other opportunities.
The FIAA makes decisions without the consensus of the artists they represent.
The FIAA is hermetically closed to any critisism.
The FIAA has a despotic* attitude.
This website IS NOT against the FIAA
but recognizes that they association might do a much better job if it was more inclusive and gave up their hold on power. The FIAA’s shows would be much better if htey listened to the artists of the building.
