The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts

A Note from Pamela Clapp

As many of you know, I am leaving the foundation after 22 wonderful years.  It has been my great fortune to have had such a challenging, stimulating job, working in the arts with the people I most admire.  And you in the Initiative are at the top of that list.  I know Rachel, who will lead the program, and James will carry on the work brilliantly, with the aid of Jackie and support of Joel and the foundation’s great board of directors and staff.

Enjoy San Francisco.  I’ll miss being with you.

    Dear Pamela Clapp:

    I am truly sorry I was unable to attend your farewell party to goodbye. Indeed you have served the field well and will be missed for your non-dogmatic  sensitive style. Do take care of yourself and I am hopeful our paths will cross soon.

    Extra special regards from all of us at Aljira.

    Here is the missing “say” from the first line in my comment: “I am truly sorry I was unable to attend your farewell party to (say) goodbye.”

    Pamela, We will all truly miss you not only in San Francisco this coming weekend, but in our day to day work. It was always clear how much you valued our work and you were always as helpful and supportive as possible.  Thank you!
