The Foundation Progetti Beverly Pepper was founded in Italy in 2018 and operates in the culture and art sector for public education and advancement of the arts, with particular attention to the works ofart of Beverly Pepper, to guarantee their conservation, promotion and correct information.
Created at the presence of the artist, the Foundation is based in her Italian art studio, in the hills of the city of Todi, Umbria in Central Italy. The Foundation Progetti Beverly Pepper is not only involved in the research, cataloguing, publication and promotion of the works of art, but also organizes and encourages meetings, seminars, art events, collaborating with associations, institutions, museums, galleries and collectors in Italy and around the world.
In 2018, the Foundation launched a year of ongoing exhibitions and art installations throughout Italy, culminating with the inauguration of the Beverly Pepper Sculpture Park in Todi, Umbria in September 2019, which will host a large portion of Pepper’s monumental sculpture collection in Italy. Exhibitions in Todi and Venice throughout the spring will trace the decade-long relationship of the American sculptor with her Umbrian town of adoption, with photographs, origina! models, large-scale sculptures and video-documentaries.
The Foundation follows closely the curation and installation of Beverly Pepper’s exhibitions, Land Art installations and art events in Italy, for the fulfillment of the artist’s intentions, poetics and concept.
