He was also on the boards of the Museum of Modern Art and of the Spoleto Festival in Italy. He endowed libraries and museums, underwrote operas, sponsored symphony premieres and championed artists and composers. His collection included the original drawings and models for Broadway productions like “South Pacific” and “Into the Woods,” and more than 1,000 set and costume designs. Learn more.
