The great art giveaway!

Earlier this year I made a gift of 20 Jerry's Map panels (like the ones above) to the American Folk Art Museum in New York. That act inspired me to do the same for other museums both in the U.S. and overseas. The Aichi Prefectural Art Museum in Nagoya had already accepted a gift after the Triennale there in 2016.

So, I made a list of potential donees and put their names in a hat. I used the same process to determine which group of panels the museum would receive. The first gifts were sent out in June. One museum graciously accepted. Two museums rejected the offer, but only one of the two returned the panels. The most recent package went out yesterday.

If you know of a museum or other public institution which would like like such a gift please let us know! I'll put their names in the hat.
