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, and therefore a portion of their value is tax-deductible, in accordance with the Internal Revenue Code. You will receive an email receipt or your records, and your donation will be noted both on our website and in the subsequent issue of Esopus.



The acclaimed conceptual artist (and Esopus Foundation Trustee) Kay Rosen created this wonderful set of archival digital prints in the format of 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 and projects throughout the United States and Europe and 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, who was born in Corpus Christi, TX, is a three-time recipient of a Visual Arts Grant from the National Endowment of the Arts, as well as a 2017 Guggenheim Fellow. She now resides in Gary, IN, and teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
