About the Collection
William Randolph Hearst, publisher and U.S. Senator, laid the foundation for one of the greatest newspaper dynasties in American History. At one time, one in four Americans read a Hearst newspsper. After his death, The Hearst Foundation has been a cornerstone of American philanthropy. For the edification of all peoples, the Foundation occasionally permits exclusive viewings of its most prized masterpieces for limited times only. We are honored to be allowed to share in the glory of these icons of humankinds' highest cultural achievements.
About the Artists
A special focus for this collection is the work of Kindah Khalidy, an energetic young Bay Area artist of extraordinary talent. The Hearst family is fostering Kinda's artistic development with a series of exclusive gallery presences across the world.
For obvious reasons, security will be tight during all viewings. An automated high-frequency laser security system is in place to protect these priceless works of art. Viewers will be allowed into the collection one at a time. Attempted art theft will be swiftly prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
