Collector's Trend: Alliances & Contributions

Posted By Administration, Sunday, January 5, 2014
Updated: Wednesday, January 8, 2014

Two recent articles support the trend of art collectors' growing role in the art world.

Lori Zimmer's Not just for private eyes: 10 collectors with museums post in Art Nerd New York this past December and Robin Dluzen's Collecting Chicago published in art ltd. last september are but two stores on the growing engagement some collector's are taking in the art world.

Zimmer's article is a list and briefing on 10 major collectors who have built their own institutions to exhibit the works they have collected. Dulzen's feature was a closer examination of two developing collections and a more intimate view of what drives the decisions of their owners, Chicago-based Scott Hunter and the Gotskinds. Scott Hunter collects emerging artists, and Linda and Paul Gotskind tend to more well-known figures, both collections specialize in Chicago artists among other parameters. Dluzen covers how these collectors are "stepping up to the plate" by lending works, sponsoring museum exhibitions, backing initiatives, and overall push their city into the spotlight of the world art-market stage. Together these stories reveal a trend in the market; collectors who are cultivating more than a private collection.
