Anne Marie MacDonald

A pioneering supporter of artists

Anne MacDonald was a beloved and instrumental figure in the Bay Area arts scene in the 1980s and 90s, known by artists, curators, and members of the cultural community as a dynamic and fearless advocate for and supporter of artists. Raised in Michigan, MacDonald moved the Bay Area in the ‘70s and founded Artspace, a nonprofit art gallery and video production facility. She also founded Artspace Books, a publishing house, and Limbo, a restaurant that supported Artspace and became a key gathering place for Bay Area artists and creatives. From lending artists money to pay their rent, to organizing trips for artists to cultural destinations around the world, Ann’s approach to supporting artists work was deeply personal, innovative, and left a lasting impact on cultural production in the Bay Area.

 Works in this year’s auction have been drawn from Anne’s personal collection, and include pieces by some of the Bay Area’s seminal artists from the 80s and 90s.
