Donor Appreciation: Ellen Liman


What happens when you’re clearing out your artist studio to make room for other pursuits? Do you call the local storage company? Place it on the sidewalk in hopes a passerby picks it up? Well if you are the artist, gallery owner, donor and philanthropist Ellen Liman, you call Materials for the Arts.

This past Monday a team from MFTA visited Mrs. Liman’s 15th floor studio to collect her donation. Easels, a flat file, paper, canvas and frames were just some of the goodies collected that are making their way to the warehouse floor.
