Foundations, like The Gordon Parks Foundation, created by visual artists are a rapidly emerging force in cultural philanthropy and artistic heritage stewardship. The Aspen Institute Artist-Endowed Foundations Initiative/AEFI aims to strengthen the charitable impact of this emerging field by addressing the significant information gap facing those who create, lead, govern, and advise artist-endowed foundations. It implements this strategy through research, publication, leadership convening, professional development, and events to share knowledge with key audiences. The foundation was pleased to host the 2018 Seminar on Strategy for Artist-Endowed Foundation Leaders on April 30.
