TOM’s Foundation
Three Decades of Dedication to
Protecting, Preserving and Promoting Erotic Art

PROTECTING  artists from unauthorized or unwanted appropriation of their artwork or name. Defending them from those that would not properly represent them. Breaking down barriers and discrimination that would inhibit the practices of artists.

PRESERVING  physical artwork and the legacies artists leave us. Sustaining documents and other objects. Keeping the names of the creator attached to their creations. Maintaining the integrity of all with which we are entrusted.

PROMOTING  artists and their careers on every level with diligence and earnestness. Encouraging collectors, institutions and the public. Advocating that the merits of art that depict sexuality signal a healthier society, one capable of understanding and change.
