Since the incorporation of the Esopus Foundation Ltd. in 2003, we have asked contemporary artists to create limited editions that we offer in exchange for donations. Revenue from these artworks allows us to continue our mission of providing an unmediated, accessible forum for artists and the general public.
These limited editions are not for sale; therefore, a portion of their value is tax-deductible per the Internal Revenue Code. Donors will receive an email receipt for their records.

Ruppersberg’s 2003 installation, The Singing Posters: Allen Ginsberg’s Howl by Allen Ruppersberg, traveled around the world, and his installation No Time Left to Start Again: The B and D of R ’n’ R was featured at the Art Institute of Chicago in 2012.
