The Cohens believe that the arts can and should enrich all people’s lives. With that conviction, the Foundation supports art education programs and has made art available to the public through private donations of artworks and underwriting of exhibitions.
The Foundation supported the exhibition Youth and Beauty: Art of the American Twenties, for the first time showing the work of sixty-eight modern realist painters, sculptors, and photographers between the Great War and the Great Depression.
