Eileen S. Kaminsky Family Foundation
Inspired by her experience as a collector, Eileen S. Kaminsky created her self-titled foundation to provide a collaborative environment that facilitates the exchange of ideas and creative expression
The non-profit organization is housed in a 6,000-square-foot exhibition space on Mana’s sixth floor, where it showcases work from a range of private collections. The Eileen S. Kaminsky Family Foundation has previously featured work by Milton Resnick, video art from the collection of Richard J. Massey, and selections from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, among others. ESKFF’s other initiatives include an emerging artist residency program, educational programming, and community outreach. It also established the Martin and Lorraine Kaminsky Studio Program to support emerging and mid-career artists of all disciplines. Each year, nearly 50 artists are selected to receive free studio space and financial assistance for a two- to three-month period at Mana. Named for the late Martin and Lorraine Kaminsky, the program encourages the development of new work, and offers artists the opportunity to collaborate with Mana’s creative community.
