Untitled (Venice) by Lee Mullican (1967). The Foundation’s initial grant to the Wallis was used to purchase this piece of art for the top of the Grand Staircase at the Wallis.

Desired Impact

The Foundation believes strongly in the power of the arts and the importance of making it accessible to all members of our diverse Los Angeles community. The Wallis, a public-private partnership with the City of Beverly Hills, shares the Foundation’s ethos and offers numerous educational programs dedicated to reaching students and underserved communities.

The mission of the Wallis is to converge relevant, dynamic performing arts, education, and civic life to strengthen our local and global community in its role as a presenter, producer, educator, and community resource. The Foundation helped the Wallis purchase the art located at the top of the Wallis Annenberg’s Grand Staircase and continues to offer ongoing support for the Wallis’s mission.
