“A Collector’s Journey” featuring Leonard Lauder

August 13, 2014

“A Collector’s Journey” will highlight Mr. Lauder’s decisions regarding his art collections and whether they are better in public or private hands. As an avid supporter of several museums, including the Whitney Museum of American Art and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, Mr. Lauder donated his Cubist collection to the Met in April 2013. Lauder’s philanthropy extends to his co-founding the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation and being a member of the President’s Council of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital
