StarArt Foundation Benifactors

Many prominent international corporations with reputations for excellence are involved with the StarArt Foundation. By joining forces, we create a vehicle in the world community to raise funds in support of institutions such as St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, UNICEF, Red Cross, Best Buddies, Special Olympics, and various national and international relief agencies.

Initially, the Foundation commissioned pop artist, Romero Britto, to create three original paintings to be used for the 1992 America's Cup. The StarArt Foundation together with Chevrolet Motor Division, worked for the benefit of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Another exciting, major corporate initiative involved Movado, a division of the American Watch Corporation, who unveiled the design for a limited edition watch "This Watch Saves Lives" using original art by Brazilian pop artist Romero Britto, and commissioned by the StarArt Foundation.

In 1995, the Foundation collaborated with the Swatch Watch Corporation regarding the design and creation of a commemorative gift to be given to each international delegate attending the Presidential Summit of the Americas in Miami, Florida. Each delegate received a Limited Edition Boxed Set of the "Swatch Presidential Historic Olympic Games Collection".

In 1996, Mr. Michael Greene past President of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences NARASĀ© invited the StarArt Foundation to provide the original art of Manabu Kochi, to be used as the official art for the 1996 GRAMMY Awards. Proceeds from the sale of the specially created Limited Editions Collection, comprised of a variety of collectible items, was created to benefit the Music Cares Foundation and selected charities of StarArt Foundation.

The Foundation is continually searching for opportunities to bring together international acclaimed artists and civic minded corporations in its pursuit "to be a bridge between art and humanity". Please look at the projects page for more exciting ventures created with the support of the international art community and the corporate world.
