A SUPERB MULTI-GEM AND DIAMOND 'MOGHUL' PENDANT-BROOCH, BY JAR
The Art for Justice Fund, started by philanthropist Agnes Gund in partnership with the Ford Foundation and Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, is a five-year initiative that uniquely connects the ingenuity of criminal justice advocates and the creativity of artists to address the crisis of mass incarceration in America. “The Art for Justice Fund invests in organizations and artists doing critical work to advance criminal justice reform,” said Helena Huang, project director for the Art for Justice Fund. “Over the next five years, we aim to reduce our country’s harmful reliance on prisons and jails, and instead to increase community investments in health and public safety.” In November 2017, the Art for Justice Fund announced the first round of grant recipients in the areas of criminal justice reform and the arts. With awards ranging from $100,000 to $7.5 million, a total of $22 million was awarded to 30 innovative programs that seek to safely reduce prison populations, strengthen education and employment opportunities for formerly incarcerated people, and humanize people affected by the criminal justice system.“My hope is that the work supported by the Art for Justice Fund will help create a groundswell that drives reforms well beyond these specific programs,” said Agnes Gund. “The problem of mass incarceration touches every community across the country, and we need to work together to find creative solutions to build a better, safer future for all our children.”Philanthropists, collectors and other donors continue to add their donations of support to the Art for Justice Fund.
