In this video, philanthropists Oprah Winfrey and Agnes Gund along with Kate Windsor, Head of School at Miss Porter’s, shine a light on the inequities that women experience in the art world and discuss their shared belief in the importance of art and arts education. By Women, For Tomorrow’s Women is the first all-women artist benefit auction at a major auction house and features works by ground-breaking artists such as Cecily Brown, Carmen Herrera, and Pat Steir. Full proceeds from the auction will benefit financial aid to enable emerging female leaders to attend Miss Porter’s School. As part of this mission, Ms. Winfrey calls for “the world to focus on the extraordinary work of women artists” and for “collectors to honor [their] work.” This auction will precede our spring Contemporary Curated auction in New York.
