Founded in 1995 and located in the heart of New York City’s Chelsea arts district, the primary purpose of Rush Arts Gallery and Resource Center is to provide an educational environment for exhibitions of works by emerging and under-represented artists, and artists of color and of the African Diaspora.

It was founded by Danny Simmons, a visual artist who found it very difficult coming up in the late 80s/early 90s to find an entry point into New York City's commercial gallery scene for himself and many of his colleagues. His original goal was to provide emerging artists and emerging audiences with a welcoming and hospitable exhibition venue.

Since its inception, Rush Arts has shown works by hundreds of emerging and established artists, largely people of color. It has also served an emerging audience of thousands of individuals (primarily people of color ages 18-45), many of whom are artists, students, or are new to visiting art galleries. In addition to exhibitions, spoken word events, artist talks, and it is home to the Rush Kids Visual Arts Mentorship Program.
