Adrian Cheng is joining the board of the Public Art Fund, now comprising 26 members.
Known for his philanthropic and entrepreneurial initiatives, Adrian Cheng is also executive vice-president of the New World Development Company based in Hong Kong, and director of Chow Tai Fook, a Chinese jewellery business. He is also founder of the K11 Art Foundation, created in 2010 to support contemporary Chinese art by offering Chinese artists a platform for international visibility and residence programmes. This is the first New York board that Adrian Cheng is joining.
The director of Public Art Fund, Nicholas Baume, is enthusiastic about this new arrival: “Like Public Art Fund, Adrian Cheng is committed to breaking down barriers between the great art of our time and broad, diverse audiences.”
