$800,000 Awarded to Six Institutions by Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason Foundations

Six cultural institutions have been named as the beneficiaries of an $800,000 grant initiative honoring artists Wolf Kahn (1927–2020) and Emily Mason (1932–2019), who were married for sixty-two years. The grant recipients are Hunter College (Advanced Curatorial Certificate Program), the New York Botanical Garden, the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop), and the International Print Center, all in New York, and the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center and the Vermont Studio Center, both in Vermont. Each grantee will receive $100,000. The grants are made jointly by the Wolf Kahn Foundation and the Emily Mason | Alice Trumbull Mason Foundation and represent the first collaborative philanthropic initiative between the two organizations. The gifts are intended to reflect five facets of the artists’ life together in New York, where they lived and worked, and Vermont, where they had a summer home and studios. These are New York City, access to arts education, Vermont, gardens and the natural world, and printmaking.
