BRINGING ART TO THE PEOPLE SINCE 1992

The artWork

Since the early 90's Cronin’s work has been provoking discussion and tackling social issues, while bringing a sense of play into the viewer's day. You can find Cronin's work hanging with Basquiat, Warhol, Haring and Hirst in Mallorca Spain. He has over 100 pieces of available work including a body of work created at Thread Artist Residency in Senegal, through the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation.

The Brand

Founded in 1992, CronArtUSA has deep roots in the DIY culture of the day. What began as a side gig screen printing his images on tee shirts and creating flyers for his band Mearth, evolved into a full apparel line driven by his original imagery. In 2015, along with his wife Melanie, they opened The Cronin Gallery, and Shop in New Paltz, NY, featuring a rotating exhibition of original works and an extensive product line fueled by Cronin’s bold imagery.

The People

Our people are creative spirits with big imaginations, and big ideas. People who follow their hearts and share a vision for a more equitable world. We don’t wait for opportunities to come to us, we build that road ourselves, and invite everyone to join us on the journey. We are instigators and agents of change, and if it isn’t fun, we don’t do it. We share an understanding that art connects us as a shared experience, linking us through a story from our past, with an expression of what is happening in the moment, or in a vision for the future.

Art For Good

From the beginning, CronArtUSA has been committed to using our platform and resources for good. Giving back is an essential feature of our business model, that is why we established our charitable fund 12 Months of Giving. We weave our philanthropic initiatives into our day-to-day business operations, giving us the opportunity to partner with changemakers in support of causes close to our heart throughout the year. All initiatives are rooted in the original work of Artist Ryan Cronin, honoring his commitment to using art for good.

September 2019, Senegal

Cronin spent thirty days in Senegal at Thread Artist Residency thanks to the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation.

In many ways, Cronin's journey to Thread began through his work with Go Doc Go, a non-governmental, international medical organization (NGO) that works to prevent cervical cancer around the world.
