About the Foundation
The Soloviev Foundation is the charitable giving arm of the Soloviev Group, dedicated to supporting the efforts of those working across humanitarian, environmental, and educational causes.
Our mission is simple and intentionally broad: to help make a better world. We pride ourselves on the diversity of our partners in this work. The Foundation’s gifts go to both large, long-established institutions addressing global crises and concerns, and smaller, hyperlocal organizations serving the populations in need within their communities.
Our process and criteria for determining the recipients of Soloviev Foundation gifts are straightforward. We identify a need that aligns with our values and seek out the nonprofit organizations best-suited to address that need most effectively and which can make the largest impact. While all causes are considered in our giving plan, we are especially committed to supporting at-risk children, promoting values in society, and encouraging social responsibility.
Developing and nurturing the next generation of leaders today, for a better tomorrow.
The Gallery & Collection
The Soloviev Foundation is pleased to share portions of its exceptional collection with the public for the first time in more than 20 years. Collection highlights include works by Alberto Giacometti, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró, and Henry Moore as well as many other significant artists. A list of works in the collection will soon be made available here.
Beyond making its art collection accessible to the public, the Foundation will also invest in the next generation of artists, staging exhibits of promising new creators, sponsoring competitions focused on humanitarian and climate crises, and providing artists meaningful opportunities to perfect their craft.
The Soloviev Art Gallery will showcase a rotating array of exhibitions drawing from, but not limited to, the foundation’s impressive and expansive collection. A singular assemblage of works by modern masters of the 20th century is currently on view at the ground floor of the Soloviev Group’s iconic tower office tower 9 West 57th Street.
Future plans for the Soloviev Art Gallery include an expansion of the gallery space by architect Thomas Phifer to accommodate more works, staging exhibitions that highlight the work of emerging artists, and offering promising artists masterclasses with premier contemporary practitioners from a variety of disciplines. Additional programs include the sponsorship of art competitions for young people that engage in global issues such as climate change, childhood poverty, and human rights.
As part of the Foundation’s efforts to share its collection and to promote cross-cultural cooperation and understanding, the gallery frequently lends its works to art institutions worldwide.
The Gallery is on view by appointment only. This summer, bi-monthly guided tours are available at 3pm, 4pm and 5pm on May 24 and 25, June 26 and 27, July 26 and 27 and August 14 and 15. This fall, gallery tours will be once a month at 11am, 12pm, 2pm and 3pm on September 23, October 14, November 18, and December 9.
