Park West Foundation and Park West Gallery
Working Together to Bring Art to the World
Since it was founded in 2006, the Park West Foundation has regularly partnered with Park West Gallery to help promote arts education and provide the general public with increased access to fine art. “Through our unique partnerships, the Park West Foundation is educating and exposing communities around the country to the world of art,” says Park West Foundation Director Diane Pandolfi.
One major driver of this mission is Park West Gallery and Park West Foundation’s “Museum Spotlight” program. Beginning in 2016, this program has spearheaded major exhibitions by Park West Gallery artists like Peter Max, Yaacov Agam, Anatole Krasnyansky, and others at prestigious museums around the world. You can find more information on those exhibitions here.
In 2017, Park West Gallery and Park West Foundation co-sponsored “Monet: Framing Life,” an exhibition highlighting the legacy of famed Impressionist Claude Monet at the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA). It was the first Monet exhibition in the history of the DIA.
Park West Foundation has also partnered with Tennessee’s Monthaven Arts and Cultural Center to hold exhibitions from a select group of accomplished Park West Gallery artists, including Autumn de Forest, Alexandre Renoir, and Tim Yanke.

In 2018, Park West Gallery and Park West Foundation was proud to debut their new traveling museum exhibition, “Salvador Dalí’s Stairway to Heaven,” at the Hilliard University Art Museum in Lafayette, Louisiana. This look at Dalí’s illustrations for Dante’s “Divine Comedy” broke attendance records at the Hilliard and will travel to various museums around the United States through 2021.
