COURTESY HALL ART FOUNDATION

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. It also runs a branch in Derneburg, Germany, 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.
