Cultural Evenings – coming once safe to do so...
Artemizia Foundation will offer educational and cultural evenings to a lucky few in our newly renovated 1905 building.
Evenings offer informative talks and videos by artists, curators and historians; events feature group discussions and include hors d’oeuvres and sometimes dinner.
Depending on the nature of the event, tickets cost between $30 and $75 per person.

FUTURE EVENTS to include discussions of the following artists:
Ai Weiwei – Chinese contemporary artist and activist. Ai grew up in the far north-west of China, where he lived under harsh conditions due to his father's exile. As an activist, he has been openly critical of the Chinese Government's stance on democracy and human rights. The Artemizia Foundation displays 8 signed pieces and 1 sculpture by Ai Weiwei.
Yayoi Kusama – Japanese contemporary artist working across painting, sculpture, film, and installation. She has produced a body of work formally unified by its use of repetitive dots, pumpkins, and mirrors. “With just one polka dot, nothing can be achieved. In the universe, there is the sun, the moon, the earth, and hundreds of millions of stars,” the artist has mused. The Artemizia Foundation displays 1 signed piece and multiple sculptures by Yayoi Kusama.
Kara Walker – American contemporary painter, silhouettist, print-maker, installation artist, and film-maker who explores race, gender, sexuality, violence, and identity in her work. She is best known for her room-size tableaux of black cut-paper silhouettes. The Artemizia Foundation displays 5 signed pieces by Kara Walker.
Kerry James Marshall – American contemporary painter whose work explores the complex effects of the Civil Rights movement on the everyday life of African Americans. Through narrative scenes that draw both from history and the artist’s own life, Marshall delves into obscure moments and objects important to contemporary and past black culture. The Artemizia Foundation displays 1 signed piece by Kerry James Marshall.
Blek le Rat – French graffiti artist who uses stencils and spray paint to create wall paintings, using photographic sources and juxtaposition to convey provocative and politically controversial statements. The artist’s interest in social commentary through graffiti has had a major influence on street artists around the world, including the anonymous Banksy. The Artemizia Foundation displays 3 signed pieces by Blek le Rat.
Judy Chicago – American artist and major figure within the early Feminist Art movement of the 1970s, and is considered one of the most prominent voices in ongoing dialogue about women and art. Chicago consistently challenges the male-dominated art world and seeks to draw attention to traditionally dismissed craft, such as needlework and ceramics. The Artemizia Foundation displays 2 signed pieces by Judy Chicago.
