ABOUT THE ARTEMISIA FOUNDATION
Cartographers “mapping your world”
If you are curious, dive in and pass it on. Inspiration is contagious and comes from courage, so join the conversation and discover Artemisia, support us as we support artists that are young and dedicated, fresh and full of ideas and energy.
Dialogue between local and global is essential!
We must fight for great art to be a true part of the fabric of American life. With your help and insight, Artemisia foundation crosses boundaries, artists from every part of the world, come to us and we bring them to you.
Our mission is to champion one local pianist, in a highly visible recital and create opportunities galvanizing them to go out into the world, talking and playing for young people in schools, the elderly in homes and those in business, unaccustomed to going to the concert hall. They travel spreading inspiration through the works of the greatest composers from our civilization.
Our participation with Yale University, is a program, Artemisia Akademie at Yale, whereby we choose 10 young pianists to engage and learn, one Sunday per month at Yale, receiving master classes, lectures, curated art galleries & historical instruments tours, hosted by Dean Robert Blocker, and some of the most acclaimed pedagogues Yale has to offer. These fellows become ambassadors for the world & help younger pianists in the world. Three Sundays per year assisted by Dr. Veda Kaplinsky, chair of piano at The Juilliard School, they are championed and participate in The Juilliard School.
The third part of our mission is The Stella Series, in Stella Tower, whereby we have monthly concerts presented by Artemisia and every other, Broadway concerts presented by Broadway artists hosted by Michael Rose and Stephen Schwartz & supported by Vickey Barron of Douglas Elliman .
We wish to video and archive all activities so they spread through YouTube to all young people who don’t have access to these fine institutions and impart the highest level of artistic endeavors and impart why Classical music is so terribly valuable and need to be heard and kept for the next generation. Audiences look to art as a kind of restorative because if they see in it something of themselves, of their consciousness, perhaps as a nation, a group, or as individuals. Art clears the path, without prejudice, without borders, without walls.
Art can speak to you by speaking for you.
