LOEWE FOUNDATION, Associate Supporter
The LOEWE FOUNDATION was established as a private cultural foundation in 1988 by Enrique Loewe, a fourth-generation member of LOEWE’s founding family. Today, under the presidency of his daughter Sheila Loewe, the Foundation continues to promote creativity, organise educational programs and protect cultural heritage in the fields of craft, design, photography, and poetry.
The Foundation was awarded the Gold Medal for Merit in the Fine Arts by the Spanish government in 2002. In 2016, the LOEWE FOUNDATION launched the international annual LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize inspired by LOEWE’s beginnings as a craft cooperative in 1846, with the aim to acknowledge the importance of craft in today’s culture and to recognize artisans whose talent, vision and will to innovate will set a standard for the future. The exhibition featuring the finalist works of the latest edition of the LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize will be on show in Seoul in Spring 2022.
