In response to the catastrophic situation artists and art organizations face in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation has announced a $5 million commitment to relief funding over the next three years. Building on its commitment to supporting artists and art institutions, this multiyear initiative marks the Foundation’s largest commitment of funding to date in support of a single cause since it became active in 2013.
