Gifts from the private collection of judith alexander

Judith Alexander left behind an impressive art collection, a part of which came to be in the care of the Foundation in 2005.  Individual pieces are being carefully gifted to arts institutions over time. The goal is to find homes for the various works where they can be seen and appreciated by the public for many years to come.
