We love working with and supporting the Park City Community Foundation. And so when we learned that this non-profit leader was moving to a new office space, we wanted to support them in the best way that we know how: with art!
Working with gallery-owned artwork and donated paintings by a selection of Gallery MAR artists, we placed a series of original artwork for the Foundation’s collection. So many of our incredible artists stepped up right away with a “yes!” and I was amazed with their level of generosity. Special thanks to Maura Allen and Michael Kessler for going above and beyond.
These pieces are now owned by the Foundation — and theirs to exhibit how they wish. Although some of the staff have chosen their favorites, it’s up to them how they want to display the pieces for the future. Only time will tell: will they swap pieces with their co-workers?
It’s so important to surround yourself with beautiful things: relationships, people, experiences, art. It makes your life that much richer.
We hope that they enjoy the collection and that it continues to inspire the foundation’s staff, board, and visitors — to do great work!
What is a Community Foundation?
Inspiring local and lasting change. Together.
Park City Community Foundation plays a vital role in solving our community’s most challenging problems. By constantly identifying gaps and issues within our community, we have a keen understanding of Park City’s most pressing needs. To address these issues and fund solutions, we bring together local nonprofits, caring donors and community leaders to contribute both financial resources and innovative ideas that effect lasting change.
In addition to building permanent philanthropic endowments for our region, Park City Community Foundation enables donors to establish their own charitable funds and contribute a variety of assets to them, so they can support the specific issues and organizations they care about. And because the Community Foundation is intimately knowledgeable about the nonprofit activities of our community, we’re able to advise donors on the specific organizations that are doing the most meaningful, high-impact work. At the same time, we’re continuously serving as advisors to and advocates for the full range of local nonprofits, so that every organization can be strengthened for the greater good of the community.
