Established in 1998 by artists Wolf Kahn (1927—2020) and Emily Mason (1932—2019), the Kahn | Mason Foundation has consistently supported cultural organizations through grants for exhibitions, artist residencies, and community engagement with the arts. The joint expression of their philanthropy will continue as the Foundation expands its mission to serve as the steward of Kahn’s artistic legacy.
Emily Mason and Wolf Kahn, in their sixty-two year marriage, had independent studio practices and a lifetime of family, shared friendships, and support of arts organizations and artists. The creation of their foundation over twenty years ago was a joint expression of their values.
