$15,000 toward Ray Johnson: Correspondences, an exhibition organized by curator Donna De Salvo. Johnson was an enigmatic art world figure who has been called the “most famous unknown artist.” He is remembered for his role in the early development of Pop Art and “mail art” (collage sent via the U.S. Postal Service) which is the subject of the exhibition. Johnson ultimately withdrew from others and the art world, yet continued to create works of art.
