“I believe deeply in the values of Beauty, Kindness and Truth. Anna Chromy
The Anna Chromy Foundation is a Dutch public entity registered in The Hague (City of Peace and Justice) to further educational and charitable activities serving a public benefit.
The Foundation has been endowed by Anna Chromy with over 500 of her works, including the monumental Cloak of Conscience.
The Foundation is currently working on the project of a “Garden of Conscience” (see hereafter) in Pietrasanta, Tuscany, called “La Piccola Atene” for its rich artistic heritage. It’s here that Anna Chromy has created all her sculptures.
The Foundation aims to globally promote and protect the works of Anna Chromy, arouse public social conscience, call for peace and empathy, strengthen international and inter-ethnic understanding and communication, through the promotion of Anna Chromy’s artworks and popularization of the artistic and philosophical spirit embodied in these works.
Aforementioned purpose is achieved, inter alia, through: Themed exhibitions of Anna Chromy’s art, loans and donations to museums, organization of the yearly Anna Chromy Award, creation of a space for the monumental Cloak of Conscience, a studio/exhibition space for Anna’s book, video and photo library, placement of additional Cloaks and other public sculptures, education of art students in the canon of Anna Chromy’s art.
“I believe deeply in the values of Beauty, Kindness and Truth. I believe that it is urgent for the survival of humanity to create a renewed sense of ethics, once a domain of religions, and to create an economic system that can function without plundering the non-renewable resources of our mother Earth, and destroying the environment, our nest”. Anna Chromy
Stop for a moment and remind yourself that over seven billion people are breathing with you, right now, to understand that ONLY TOGETHER we can change the world – in the Name of the Cloak. The message Anna Chromy portrays in her works is based on the consciousness of our interdependence and the moral and ethical conclusions to draw for our conscience.
Her numerous Public Sculptures, spread throughout Europe and China, are a constant reminder for everybody. Look out on your next trip for a Cloak or other work of Anna; locate them on Google Maps before you leave; view them in Exhibitions and Theater and Music Events; and share your impressions with Anna on her website and social media.
