Sotheby’s is excited to announce a curated grouping of artworks to benefit the Watermill Center. The Watermill Center is a laboratory for the arts and humanities, established in 1990 in Water Mill, New York, by theater artist Robert Wilson. For 30 years, Watermill has been a site for artist residencies, exhibitions, and education, with a focus on emerging international artists. In 2016, The Watermill Center initiated the Inga Maren Otto Fellowship, which includes among its alumni: Carrie Mae Weems, Tania Bruguera, Shaun Gladwell, Anne Carson, and Barthelemy Toguo. The Watermill Center welcomes over 200 artists for residencies each year, and offers free educational programming to students from the local communities of Long Island. The Center's research library, art collection, and gardens are free and open to the public.
