The Annie F. Lee Art Foundation was established in 2015 to continue Annie's heritage of creativity and charity. Annie appreciated being able to help people; she donated her time, influence, money, food, home, and paintings. With her artistic talent, Annie dramatically transformed her life, and the life of those that she encountered. Using the power of artistic expression to advocate self awareness, self respect, and also create opportunity and positive change is paramount to who Annie Lee was, and what her legacy should be all about. We, the directors and officers of AFL35, have not lost sight of these ideals in Annie's absence. In fact, it is by continuing this rich legacy that we remain connected to the spirit of this African American icon. It is with great honor, that we strive to make an impact that will promote art, uplift humanity, and harness brotherly love amongst ourselves and others.
