George Segal

The George and Helen Segal Foundation was created in 2000, shortly after George Segal's passing. Its purpose is to continue showing Segal's work around the world, to give out grants to artists, to gift Segal's work to museums and galleries, and to provide an authoritative place to purchase the art of this world-renowned painter, sculptor, and visionary.

Through this website, we hope that you will learn about George Segal's life, art, and legacy.
