Traveling Talks: Church & Cut Outs, Sketches, and Studies

Perhaps the process of assembling a 21st century installation art piece and a 19th century panoramic landscape painting share more than we realize. Join Caroline O’Connell from the Drawings, Prints & Graphic Design Department at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum for a close reading of Frederic Church’s trips to Maine in the 1850s as illustrative of the common ground. O’Connell will show work from storage at the Cooper Hewitt as well as share interesting facts about the Hewitt sisters’ acquisition of over 2,000 works by Church in 1917. Illustrated lecture followed by Q&A and an abridged tour of the main house. Refreshments will be served.

Saturday, April 22 | 4PM | Member: $15, Non-Member: $20 | Ages 12+

Planned Giving


Real Estate Real estate offers you several creative ways to help Olana. Outright transfers, trusts, gifts of remainder interests, bargain sales, and gifts of fractional interests are possible. The tax treatment is similar to that for appreciated stock gifts.

Bequest A bequest in your will naming The Olana Partnership as a recipient of a portion of your estate is another option. It is flexible, private, and easy. A bequest may be for a specific dollar amount, a percentage or fraction of your estate, or it may take the form of a trust. The taxable amount of your estate is reduced by the value of any charitable bequests. If you are seventy-five years of age or older, The Olana Partnership will honor your intentions to provide a charitable bequest to the Partnership by giving full gift credit for the documented value of your bequest. For bequest language, please click here.

Life Income Agreements Life Income Agreements (trusts, gift annuities, and pooled income funds) can often be used as a way of sheltering assets that will pay income for life to you or anyone you name, with future benefit to Olana. You will receive a deduction for the value of Olana’s interest.

Retirement Funds
Retirement Funds are another means of benefiting Olana. Naming Olana as a beneficiary of all or part of an IRA or other retirement plan can achieve both estate tax and income tax savings. The Olana Partnership, as a 501 (c) 3 organization, will not pay income tax, and your heirs will receive their share of your estate without the burden of more taxes.

Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale a tale of a fateful trip that started from this tropic port aboard this tiny ship. Movin’ on up to the east side. We finally got a piece of the pie. If you have a problem if no one else can help and if you can find them maybe you can hire The A-Team. Well we’re movin’ on up to the east side. To a deluxe apartment in the sky. Sunny Days sweepin’ the clouds away.

Nobody talks about entrepreneurship as survival, but that’s exactly what it is and what nurtures creative thinking. Running that first shop taught me business is not financial science; it’s about trading: buying and selling.
