ADAA Raises $500,000 for Sandy Relief Fund

The Hurricane Sandy relief fund started by the Art Dealers Association of America has doubled its initial funds thanks to some donations, and the grant money currently available clocks in at $500,000. Donations came from galleries, collectors, publications and nonprofits.

In a statement, Lucy Mitchell-Innes, the ADAA president, said, “This has been an extraordinary time for the art community to come together. Galleries uptown and out of town, and even galleries that have been impacted themselves have joined forces to support those galleries in need that mean so much to the art world’s overall well-being.”
