Betlach Family Foundation

Walker Art Center Calendar and Newsletter | February 2001

This month, the Walker is pleased to recognize the Betlach Family Foundation for its very generous support of Painting at the Edge of the World, a new Walker-organized exhibition of international painting that opend on February 10. Painting at the Edge of the World features work by 30 artists from around the world, many of whom are being showcased in a major exhibition in the United States for the first time.

Walker Director Kathy Kalbreich says, "Painting at the Edge of the World continues the Walker's ongoing commitment to organize major global exhibitions with the most provocative and challenging artists of our time. However, as many of these artists are still relatively unknown, it is very difficult to find funders who are prepared to support the risks inherent in presenting their work. The willingness of the Betlach Family Foundation to take this leap of faith with the Walker means so much to all of us and we are profoundly grateful for their intellectual and financial support of our work."

The Betlach Family Foundation was created to express the Betlach family's passion for contemporary art and environmental concerns and is based in California. Through the Foundation, the Betlach family is formalizing its commitment to the arts, the environment, and endangered species by creating a vehicle that can interact with established chartiable organizations involved with these fields of interest. The Betlach Family Foundation's goal is to promote greater respect, tolerance, and harmony between people of the arts and between people and nature.
