“GIVE WHILE YOU LIVE” LONGUE VUE HIGHLIGHTS
ROSENWALD FUND IN THEIR NEXT EXHIBIT.
Today, issues of equality and community involvement are of the upmost importance. An Artistic Heritage exhibit for Longue Vue is an exhibit that highlights a legacy of social justice and philanthropy that we continue to uphold. The Rosenwald Fund was unique for its time because recipients were not discriminated by race or field of study. In the 31 years the Fund existed, it gave out grants to 862 individuals, 190 of which were for arts in such diverse fields as metalworking, language, literature, and fashion design along with traditional mediums of painting, sculpture and music.
Julius Rosenwald was very much an inspiration for Edith and Edgar Stern whose philanthropic legacy throughout our city has impacted communities and organizations such as: Dillard University, Country Day School, Pontchartrain Park, the symphony, and the New Orleans Museum of Art, to name a few. As Longue Vue continues their Artist-in-Residence program and art-focused events and workshops, the exhibit will help show the legacy of the Rosenwald and Stern work within the artistic community.
The exhibit will run from February 1st, 2019 – July 28th, 2019. Please check the exhibit page or follow us on Facebook for exhibit-related programming.
