Jasper Magazine published its first issue in September 2011 and soon began to offer ancillary arts events including Fall Lines literary journal, 2nd Act Film Project, and several one-off arts and culture commemorations including Marked by the Water, Art from the Ashes, Syzygy, and the Supper Table, the organization’s most ambitious project to date. Filing for 501(c)3 status, the organization became a non-profit entity in 2016 and has since grown to publish several multi-disciplinary arts books and establish a number of successful collateral projects such as Tiny Gallery, Jasper Writes, the Play Right Series, Jasper Artists of the Year, and more.
