It is with gratitude and a full heart that we invite you to honor the lifework of the legendary Ruth Braunstein by supporting the 2016 Founder’s Fund Drive. In memory of Ruth, we are formally establishing a fund in her name, the Ruth Braunstein ArtCare Founder’s Fund, to be dedicated to the Restoration and Maintenance of San Francisco Arts Commission’s (SFAC) public artworks.
ArtCare has become an increasingly important aspect in the health of the arts in San Francisco. Ruth deeply appreciated knowing that her friends, clients and arts community alike have been instrumental in support of this organization so dear to her heart. With this sentiment in mind, we ask you to consider a gift to the newly established Ruth Braunstein ArtCare Founder’s Fund.
In 2014, ArtCare was awarded $100,000 from Bank of America to support the restoration of Coit Tower’s 27 historic murals as well as arts education programs that bring the artists and their murals to life.
ArtCare has also funded the restoration of the seminal 1971 Peter Voulkos sculpture at the Hall of Justice; the Man Lin Choi sculpture, Movement: The First 100 Years, 1982, located on the Embarcadero’s Sue Bierman Park; and Keith Haring’s 1989 Dancing Figures at 3rd & Howard streets.
