THE BHOLDR is a website dedicated to the many facets of art.  Artists are spotlighted at THE BHOLDR for their contributions of visual art, film, music, culinary, theatre, design, fashion, dance, literature and other creative expressions.  Short documentaries explore the creative process of artists for the purpose of inspiring and sharing art.


Art is incomplete without the perceptual and emotional involvement of the viewer.
