An Exciting New Project for a Former SNF Colleague
24 January 2019

An article in Sotheby’s Magazine profiles the new Hill Art Foundation, its founder J Tomilson Hill, and its executive director Sarah Needham, a former Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Program Officer.

The article quotes Hill describing who he had in mind to fill the executive director position at his new foundation: “I had a very clear idea of the person I wanted—someone experienced in the culture of an organization I respect, as well as someone who is entrepreneurial. A can-do person.” Sarah’s work at SNF focused on grant making in the arts, with an emphasis on increasing access to arts and cultural institutions to a broader range of patrons.

The Hill Art Foundation is set to open its doors soon in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, adjacent to the popular High Line greenway.
