Foundation Membership

Official membership status was granted beginning in December 2003 to those individuals or families who had donated at least $50. Earlier donors were grandfathered in as Foundation members. A rolling calendar is used and presently, there are more than 150 members.

Members receive a periodic newsletter containing information about upcoming activities and other exhibitions, as well as news regarding the two SCULPTURE MILEs and about SCULPTURE MILE artists.

Foundation members gather often during the year for trips to other exhibitions and sculptors' studios. Learning opportunities are also available; the 2005 Hollycroft Lecture featured illustrious Metropolitan Museum lecturer Olivier Bernier.


An imaginative program of "Arty Parties" proved to be great fun, drawing crowds of both newcomers and Hollycroft regulars and providing opportunities for fantastic food while in the presence of delightful company. At left, noted chef Jacques Pepin and his wife, Gloria, in their kitchen in Madison, Connecticut with one of Pepin's own sculptures. Enthusiastic supporters of the Foundation, the Pepins served as chairpersons for the Arty Parties.

Coinciding with the creation of official membership status were a series of tours. These "Art Adventures" were open to members without charge, and non-members were invited for a modest fee. Following are a selection of photographs from recent adventures.



On a tour of two New York galleries, a Hollycroft member invited tour participants for
tea above the Christo exhibit in Central Park.


A visit to the often-neglected,
but amazing, Brooklyn Museum
was marked with a specially
arranged tour for members.


Gunnar Theel captivates the visiting members in his SoHo studio. Tours
of artist's studios are frequent and guided by qualified docents.
