Art for Justice

Art for Justice

Back in June, mega-collector Agnes Gund donated $165 million to begin the Art for Justice Fund. It is truly inspiring to watch someone not only use their wealth, but use art as the vehicle, to create positive change in our nation.

“Inspired by the leadership of Agnes Gund and seeded with funds from the sale of artwork in her collection, the Art for Justice Fund offers art collectors and patrons the opportunity to contribute to significant reforms in the criminal justice system. The Fund is a five-year initiative designed to make meaningful progress on key reforms in the U.S. criminal justice system.”

Watch above for a chance to see the Art for Justice Fund launch at the Museum of Modern Art on June 12th. The event featured a powerful array of conversations and performances by: Agnes Gund, Maria Hinojosa, Anna Deavere Smith, Piper Kerman, Glenn Martin, Charles Blow and Toshi Reagon.
