Rubin Foundation gifts NYC arts organizations with grants for social change

By Nate Freeman

Shelley and Donald Rubin have long been supporters of arts organizations and institutions in all five boroughs of New York City. The beneficiaries of the couple’s largess have included the Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City, the Queens Museum of Art, the Bronx Museum of Art, and, of course, their own Rubin Museum in Manhattan. The Rubins’ philanthropic endeavors within the city limits expanded last year when they announced that the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation was starting an Art and Social Justice initiative, which pledged to support local arts institutions that fight for social change.
