Acclaimed American artist Rosalind Fox Solomon has generously donated a limited edition of 15 archival prints, created especially for TAG. We are pleased to offer donors of $6,500 or more one of these very special prints, as available. Celebrated for her portraits and for her connection to human suffering, ritual, survival, and struggle, her work has been shown in nearly 30 solo exhibitions and 100 group exhibitions, and is in the collections of over 50 museums worldwide. Rosalind Fox Solomon's work is included in Art AIDS America, a group exhibition organized by the Tacoma Art Museum in partnership with The Bronx Museum of the Arts, July 13 to September 25th, 2016. On October 23rd at Carnegie Hall, Ms. Solomon will receive a Lucie Honoree Award for “Outstanding achievement in Portraiture”.

Our definition of portrait is not limited to the physical body, but also to the document and ‘portrait of a place or subject.'
