Christine and Andrew Hall founded the Hall Art Foundation in 2007 with the stated goal of making postwar and contemporary artworks from their own collection accessible to the public. The foundation operates a space on a former dairy farm in Vermont and additionally has ongoing exhibition partnerships with the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, in North Adams, Massachusetts, and the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology in Oxford, England. (A second branch of the foundation is currently being planned for Derneburg, Germany, where it will be housed in a 1,000-year-old former castle.) Their collection consists of over 5,000 works, among them pieces by Richard Artschwager, Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Olafur Eliasson, Eric Fischl, A. R. Penck, Julian Schnabel, Ed Ruscha, Andy Warhol, and Franz West.
