Foundations
The Carole A. Feuerman Sculpture Foundation
 was formed in 2011 to generate excitement, interest, and passion for the arts, and to inspire and award deserving artists with exhibition opportunities, internships, and grants.  The Foundation plans to foster innovative artistic expression and the creative process by organizing annual fine art exhibitions that showcase deserving artists.
The Eileen S. Kaminsky Family Foundation (ESKFF), founded in 2009, is an alternative channel for connecting artists, curators, collectors, galleries, cultural institutions, and the public through exhibitions and programming based on private contemporary art collections. Dedicated to expanding our understanding of contemporary art, the ESKFF exhibits collections usually hidden from the public eye, enriched by programs that include lecture series by artists and collectors, in order to bridge the gaps within the arts community.
Mana Contemporary is a cultural center in Jersey City, New Jersey, USA. Opened in May 2011, the center provides services, spaces, and programming for artists, collectors, curators, performers, students, and community. It includes artist studios, exhibition spaces, and storage and is situated in a 1920s-era brick former manufacturing building in the city's Marion Section near Marion Junction. The one million square foot facility is home to the Middle East Center for the Arts (MECA), The Richard Meier Model Museum, the archives of the International Center of Photography, the Magnum Foundation, the dance companies of Karole Armitage and Shen Wei, Gary Lichenstein Editions and foundations established by Eileen S Kaminksy (ESKFF) and Carole
Feuerman.
 
Carole A. Feuerman is an American artist working in hyperrealism, a movement she started in the 1970's along with Hanson and DeAndrea.
