The power of artists’ foundations in today’s world

Bruce Museum considers artists’ foundations.

There was a time when you turned to an artist’s foundation mainly for permission to reproduce a work. But according to the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, “a growing number of artists have created endowed foundations that play an important role in today’s art world, the art market and collectors’ thinking.” 

That role is the subject of a Zoom presentation Wednesday, Jan. 26, from 4 to 6 p.m.  

Robert Wolterstorff, the Susan E. Lynch executive director of the Bruce, will offer introductory remarks. Drew Watson – senior vice president of Bank of America, Art Services – will moderate a panel that will include Alexandra Fairweather, director, John Chamberlain Estate; Sandy Lee, treasurer, Joan Mitchell Foundation;  Faith Wallace-Gadsden, Ph.D., trustee, Anyone Can Fly Foundation (founded by Faith Ringgold); and Morgan Spangle, executive director, Dedalus Foundation, (originally the Motherwell Foundation). 

The panel is free for members. Reservations are required. For more, visit–and-Todays-Art-World
