Visit our tribute page to co-founder and former Director, Anna Maria Quaiat

Since 1996, nearly 800 artists and scholars from 55 countries benefitted from the gift of Anna Maria's wisdom. To honor her legacy, this year we dedicated the Fellows' Library—a place to think and share knowledge—in her name. We hope you will take the time to visit the page and learn about Anna Maria's life and work. She was an extraordinary individual who helped create an extraordinary place, and she will be dearly missed.
