Waitzkin Memorial Library Trust

The Waitzkin Memorial Library Trust is a not-for-profit organization representing the art estate of Stella Waitzkin (1920-2003).  Its mission is to care for the sculptural works of Waitzkin and to disseminate them internationally through sales and, frequently, donations. We welcome inquires about possible acquisitions from public institutions, commercial galleries, and individuals.
