October 11, 2015: “Art and Philanthropy: Building a Healthy Arts Ecosystem”

Christine was a featured panelist at Art Silicon Valley/San Francisco’s event “Art and Philanthropy: Building a Healthy Arts Ecosystem,” a conversation about giving back in the arts hosted by the San Francisco Art Dealers Association. Panelists touched on the impact of arts philanthropy and the diverse ways to support a healthy arts ecosystem, from buying art or donating to nonprofits to investing in ventures that bolster the local arts economy. In addition to sharing their experiences in arts giving, the panelists answered questions on how to get started in arts philanthropy, what questions to ask, and where to find relevant information. Christine was joined by philanthropist Deborah Rappaport, Co-founder of Minnesota Street Project. Emiko Ono, Performing Arts Program Officer at the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, moderated the panel. Visit Art SV/SF’s Events page for details.
