The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts was established in 1987. In accordance with Andy Warhol's will, its mission is the advancement of the visual arts. The primary focus of the Foundation's grant-making activity has been to support the creation, presentation and documentation of contemporary visual arts, particularly work that is experimental, under-recognized or challenging in nature. The program has been both pro-active in its approach to the field of cultural philanthropy and responsive to the changing needs of artists. A strong commitment to freedom of artistic expression continues to inform the Foundation's support of organizations that fight censorship, protect artists' rights and defend their access to evolving technologies in the digital age. Through cooperative exhibitions, loans and permanent placement of work in museums, the Foundation has ensured that the many facets of Warhol's complex oeuvre are both widely accessible and properly cared for. In helping to establish the comprehensive collection and study center of The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, the Foundation paved the way for new Warhol scholarship and curatorial innovation. The Foundation's sustained support and oversight of thoroughly researched, extensively illustrated catalogues raisonnés of Warhol's entire artistic output continues to expand the possibilities for scholarship about his work. The Foundation has used its ownership of the copyrights to Warhol images and trademarks to his name and signature as an opportunity to craft creative and responsible licensing policies that are both friendly to scholars and artists wishing to use Warhol images for educational and creative purposes and profitable to the Foundation when the images are used for commercial purposes. Revenues from licensing agreements add significantly to those earned through the continued sale of work from the Foundation's art collection, enabling the Foundation to build the endowment from which it makes cash grants to visual arts organizations around the country.
