Tom and Kitty Stoner are passionate about the arts and take annual pilgrimages to deepen their understanding of the artists whose works comprise their collection. They are currently collecting video art with a focus on nature and spirit. This ties directly to the mission of their private foundation, TKF, and its aspirations to provide a deeper human experience by inspiring and supporting the creation of public greenspace that offers a temporary sanctuary, encourages reflection, provides solace, and engenders peace and well-being. Tom and Kitty live in Annapolis, where Tom is a trustee for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. He also serves on the board of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC.
Luminance, on Tuesday, October 14, is presented by Adkins Arboretum in concert with SANDBOX at Washington College and in partnership with the TKF Foundation. SANDBOX, the Washington College Program for Creativity in the Environment, explores our aesthetic relation to the natural world, today and historically, and examines the social and ecological issues at its core by engaging students and faculty in the arts and natural sciences in collaborative projects, exhibits, performances, and experiments.
