Artist-Endowed Foundation Leadership Forum


Megan Fox Kelly was honored to join The Aspen Institute Artist Endowed Foundation’s Initiative as a part of the panel discussion on “Strategy Spotlight: Navigating the Art Market and the Art Dealer Relationship.” She joined panelists Sanford Hirsch, Executive Director, Adolf and Esther Gottlieb Foundation; Leah Levy, Executive Director, Jay DeFeo Foundation; Morgan Spangle, Executive Director, Daedalus Foundation; Derek Gillman, Distinguished Teaching Professor, Art History and Museum Leadership, Drexel University. The panel successfully examined the nature of gallery representation within the global, multi-platform art market.


The Artist-Endowed Foundation Leadership Forum is an annual, invitational symposium which allows senior- artist- endowed foundation leaders to discuss various issues and policies that influence the field’s charitable impact in art stewardship and cultural philanthropy. 

The 2016 Forum was located at the Morgan Library & Museum in New York City and hosted over 89 senior leaders from 60 artist-endowed foundations across the U.S. and Europe.
