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.



Renowned conceptual artist (and Esopus Foundation trustee) Kay Rosen created this whimsical set of archival digital prints as holiday greeting cards for the Foundation’s Fall 2011 fundraiser. 

Over the past three decades, Kay Rosen’s word paintings have continually challenged the distinctions between verbal and visual representation. Her work has appeared in countless solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe. She has been featured in publications such as Bomb, Artforum, and Reallife. She is represented by Yvon Lambert in Paris and New York and by Klosterfelde Gallery in Berlin. Rosen is a three-time recipient of a Visual Arts Grant from the National Endowment of the Arts and a 2017 Guggenheim Fellow. She teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She lives in New York and Gary, Indiana.
