FRIENDS, Foundation support program
FRIENDS program was created to help the Foundation implement its program in support for women artists, consisting of research projects, exhibitions, book publications, seminars. We invite you to join the group of the Foundation’s Friends and support us with a financial contribution. In exchange, we would like to offer to potential members exclusive access to a range of specially dedicated activities organized by the Foundation and exclusive collections of the art works as a token of gratitude.
