On November 20, the launch of the Carl Heidenreich Foundation was celebrated at the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive’s Cafe Babette. Friends and family, collectors and art historians gathered to pay homage to the artist. For the last half century, a handful of committed supporters advanced Heidenreich’s legacy. The new foundation will ensure that the next generation will carry the work forward for years to come.
Among the attendees were Monica Smith, Heidenreich’s daughter, and granddaughter Karla Lortz, who came from the Seattle area.
