Tuesdays@2: The Artist as Philanthropist

2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Title: The Artist as Philanthropist: The Emerging Field of Artist-Endowed Foundations in the U.S.

Overview: Bearing names such as Warhol, Mapplethorpe, Rauschenberg, Haring, and Avedon, private foundations created by visual artists are a growing force in cultural philanthropy. Recent research on this small but expanding field conducted by the Aspen Institute’s National Study of Artist-Endowed Foundations found $3 billion in assets, half in artworks and intellectual property, and a variety of charitable activities, including making grants, operating artist residencies, stewarding art collections, and developing educational resources. Join Christine J. Vincent, the Aspen Study Director, as she discusses the roles of these uniquely-endowed philanthropies and what their growing influence means in the arts and in philanthropy.
