The opening sculpture exhibit of the late Anthony Quinn opened Friday night at the Sarah Langley Gallery at the Hammetts Hotel to a packed crowd hoping to get further insight into the man most widely known for his diverse roles on the cinema screen and stage. His wife, Katherine Quinn, was on hand to graciously answer questions and give her own personal thoughts on Quinn, whom she knew later in life and more as an artist than an actor.
Anthony Quinn Foundation’s mission is to advocate for the important role arts education plays in personal development and in the overall improvement of social, economic and cultural systems. Central to the pursuit of the Foundation’s mission is the life story of Anthony Quinn. His artistic legacy inspires young adults; learning about the challenges of his youth and the ways in which he overcame them helps inspire confidence in their own creative potential. Toward these ends, the Anthony Quinn Foundation provides scholarship support to gifted young adults seeking to further their talents in the areas of visual arts and design, as well as the performing, media and literary arts; sponsors exhibitions and creative retreats; and provides access to the creative world of Anthony Quinn, including his private art collections.
