About the Foundation
Empowering awareness of visual and queer arts
through the work of John Burton Harter
The John Burton Harter Foundation is a nonprofit organization that promotes John Burton Harter’s art and the interests he cared about. JBHF provides resources to nonprofit organizations that advance the arts by featuring Harter’s work.
John Burton Harter (1940-2002) established the foundation through a charitable trust to ensure the visibility of his art and fulfill his creative vision. In keeping with his wishes, JBHF has supported exhibitions, catalogues, publications, and initiatives with funding or gifts of original Harter works since 2002. Recipients include non-profit institutions and organizations, from major art museums to local groups.
In addition, JBHF preserves Harter’s art, facilitates loans, and places works in important museums to expand Harter’s legacy and creative impact.
