Bruce Experiences: The Artist’s Legacy: The Importance for Collectors and Today’s Art World

The discussion will focus on the influential role artist endowed foundations play in today’s art world, relevance to collectors, the art market, and art institutions. 

A growing number of artists are establishing private foundations to provide for posthumous stewardship of their creative legacy and to realize their philanthropic concerns in the longer term. 

Endowed with the artists’ artwork and intellectual property, artist-endowed foundations are playing an increasingly vital role both in cultural philanthropy and in the stewardship of significant art collections. Yet artist-endowed foundations remain obscure, even to many art world insiders. 

Panelists: Alexandra Fairweather, Director; John Chamberlain Estate; Sandy Lee, Treasurer, Joan Mitchell Foundation; Dr. Faith Wallace-Gadsden, Trustee, Anyone Can Fly Foundation (founded by Faith Ringgold); and Morgan Spangle, Executive Director, Dedalus Foundation, (originally the Motherwell Foundation)

Bruce Experiences programs, sponsored by Bank of America, are provided free of charge for Bruce Museum Members. Reservations are required.
