If you want to find all the arts nonprofits in a particular town, go to http://www.guidestar.org. And you should have made it more clear what the difference between a non-profit and a for profit organization is. For example, as you point out, non-profits have boards of directors and are required to have a certain amount of transparency. That is if they are non-profits in the legal sense. But if I were to host art shows in my apartment without offering the work for sale, that would be non-profit in de facto sense. In Houston, neither the Art Car Museum nor the Station Museum are non-profits in the legal sense, but they are obviously not for profit institutions.
