Catalogue Note

The fine art collection at Hasbro, Inc. was conceived and curated to interface with the spirit of the company. There was a strong emphasis on innovation, new ideas and a sense of play. The collection was the idea of Stephen Hassenfeld, then President and CEO of Hasbro. The collection was curated by Nancy Rosen in 1987 when Hasbro opened its former New York Showroom on 23rd street. Many of the works hung in the lobby, mezzanine and the offices.

Giving back has been part of Hasbro's DNA since its inception in 1923.  The Hasbro Children's Fund, Inc., the charitable arm of the Company, received the art collection as a gift from the corporation in 2013.  Proceeds from the sale will help fund programs that service children in need around the world.
