Collection Sharing supports the Andersons' commitment of making artwork
available to non-profit art institutions for exhibition purposes. We focus
on organizations in the Bay Area and Western United States who can best utilize
the resources of the Anderson Collection, the Anderson Graphic Arts Collection
at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (FAMSF), and/or the support of the
Anderson Charitable Foundation. Through loaning art or providing matching
support, we hope to encourage exhibitions that might otherwise not be developed.
Collection Sharing exists in two forms. The first encompasses works currently within the Anderson Collection. The second relates to a 1996 gift of 655 graphic works to FAMSF which are available for loan to approved institutions. These two programs operate independently but collaborate often. As illustrated by the links to past exhibitions, artwork can be borrowed from one or both of these collections.
Fundamentally, the goal of Collection Sharing is to make these resources available to an expanded community.
