    In March 2020, the world was abruptly thrust into a global crisis as the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the globe, causing a collective pause in our lives. During this challenging period of forced togetherness, artist Mira Gandy and her mother found themselves in deep reflection. As they watched the weeks of quarantine transform into seemingly endless months, a profound realization emerged: the world was hungry for the healing power of the arts.


    The Gandy Art House (GAH) idea was conceived from this shared conviction. Since its inception in 2020, GAH has been driven by Mira's unwavering passion for making art accessible to LGBTQ+ youth, families, and young artists of color.
