Realizing that a certain magic happens when art, creative thinking, and community join forces, Milenko Matanovic left a successful art career and turned his energy toward founding the non-profit Pomegranate Center in 1986.

Since then, Pomegranate Center has worked with hundreds of communities across the country and abroad, collaborated with communities to build more than 40 gathering places, and trained hundreds of remarkable individuals in the Pomegranate Center model of community building.
