The Scent exhibit curated by Chandler Burr at the Department of the Olfactory Art at the Museum of Arts & Design in NYC is going strong. Donations form the backbone of any scientific or artistic venture with any hope of distinguishing itself so it's heartening to hear things go well for Burr's project.
For 2012 the lookout looks like this:
The Estée Lauder Companies: Founding Major Donor
Chanel: Major Donor (both 2012 and 2013)
P&G Prestige: Major Donor
Hermès: Major Donor
IFF Major Donor
The donors of the Department of Olfactory Art fall into the following categories
Friends: $5,000 to $24,900
Supporters: $25,000 to 49,000
Funders: $50,000 to $99,000
Major Donors: $100,000 and above
Looks like both the industry has embraced this innovative approach of appreciating the juice itself and that the money is flowing freely to support this venture. All around wishes for the best outcome!
