Art has had an important place in society for nearly all of human history. The imagery that art has portrayed has varied over the years. Sometimes art has been nothing more than simple pictures meant to captivate the audience. Other times, art has been used to create powerful political statements. No matter the reason, great artists have used the power of emotion to create and further humanity.
But despite this, for much of the history of art, things have not been easy for artists. Until recent times, female artists have continually gotten the short end of the stick when it came to recognition of their art. It’s not a mistake to think that female artists have been limited and marginalized for too long. Even now, contemporary female artists struggle to get the mainstream recognition that they deserve.
This is a situation that needs to change. And for business leader and philanthropist Joey Horn, the time for change is now.

Her artistic collection has continued to grown and contains contemporary pieces from all around the world. Horn is especially fond of female artists that are both innovative and artistically brave. Some of her more recent favorites include art from Shilpa Gupta, Lin Tianmiao and Laylah Ali. Horn has other favorites but each follows a common theme of committing to examining modern society through the lens of the female experience. It is a commitment that is not afraid of being controversial or questioning the status quo.
A large part of their success, however, is no doubt a result of the support of Joey Horn.
