Sperone Westwater presents a special exhibition of the Foundation for Art and Preservation in Embassies’ Original Print Collection. Named for FAPE’s Founding Director, the Collection is FAPE’s oldest program. Each year, an American artist contributes a print for display in U.S. embassies, beginning in 1989, when Frank Stella donated The Symphony in an edition large enough for a print to be sent to every American embassy. Since 1995, nineteen renowned contemporary artists have donated original works to the Collection, including: John Baldessari, Louisiana Bendolph, Mary Lee Bendolph, Chuck Close, Jasper Johns, Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, among others.
