Our Objectives

The primary objectives of The Fine Art Advocacy Foundation are:

  • to act as an advocate and provide support to all victims of art fraud and art crimes;
  • to act as an advocate and provide support to museums, historical societies and other repositories and historical landmarks and especially all American institutions currently struggling with today’s financial challenges;
  • to act as an advocate and provide support to self-promoting artists in the challenges they face in an unregulated art market;
  • to act as an advocate and provide support to collectors.

There are many individuals, artists, collectors, gallery owners, museums and other public cultural institutions, that have had crimes committed against them and they often feel alone and frustrated by the legal system and the general lack of resources concerning art crime and art fraud. Our goal is to provide assistance to these victims in any manner possible. By gathering experiences, we can serve as an invaluable resource to those who have been victimized in nearly every sector of the art and collectible industry.

As an organization, we report and publish incidents/stories that have been submitted to us by victims and others that have relevant stories to share concerning the unregulated fine art and collectible industry. We are providing the public, previous and future cruise travelers, and our visitors with such details. Our mission is a matter of public policy and is intended to raise public awareness of potential threats and abuse, due to the unregulated fine art and collectible industry and the lack of accountability.

Membership

Membership of The Fine Art Advocacy Foundation is not limited to victims of art crime and art fraud. The Fine Art Advocacy Foundation welcomes as members any individuals that believe in our objectives and would like to offer their assistance. The privacy of our members is always protected.
