DEPT. OF CULTURE is a Non-Profit artist driven fashion brand. DEPT. OF CULTURE commissions artists to create original works which are then curated into capsule collections.


DEPT. OF CULTURE created two unique programs:

Artist’s in Residence are a carefully curated group of artisans who are commissioned by DEPT. OF CULTURE to create innovative and relevant pieces for each capsule collection.

Installation Artist’s program supports artists who will make a positive and impactful change within our community by creating original site-specific art installations.


Funds generated from each collection directly sponsor unique and meaningful art installations. DEPT. OF CULTURE’s most recent charitable Installation dramatically transformed The Rise School, a pre-school for developmentally challenged children.
