James Fitzgerald’s immersion in Eastern philosophy, so evident in his art, also influenced his outlook towards his work. He maintained a belief that if his art were any good, it would survive him, and that if were not, it shouldn’t. Free of the burdens of self-promotion, he was able to focus all his concentration on the work, quietly confident that he could leave the future of his artistic legacy to others.
For over thirty years, the Huberts selflessly strove to promote their friend’s artistic heritage. Now, the James Fitzgerald Legacy continues that tradition. If you too have an interest in the future of his artistic legacy, please consider supporting the work of the James Fitzgerald Legacy.
The program operates with a budget that is altogether independent of its parent institution, the Monhegan Museum. Funds raised by the Legacy finance all aspects of our mission, including the promotion and research of the work, the archival storage and conservation of paintings, including the cost of climate controlled vaults, the professional high resolution photography of the Legacy Collection, and the costs entailed by future publications and exhibitions, among other things. The members of the Legacy raise funds from individuals, as well as from grants and foundations.
You can also show your support with a purchase from our selection of Fitzgerald related items that are available from this site. All funds generated from the sales of these items help to support our work.
