Lannan Foundation

 First match with a $200,000 gift.  Established more than 60 years ago, Lannan Foundation is a distinguished advocate for the visual arts and seeks to advance cultural freedom, diversity, and creativity. In the early 2000s, Lannan Foundation supported the tour of The Disappeared, an exhibition Reuter curated that toured to South and Central America, and five sites in the US. Fully supporting Reuter’s vision, Lannan Foundation contributed $200,000 to the fund.  Click here to read the foundation’s letter of support for the Director’s Fund.
