The Morris B. Squire Art Foundation is a lending resource of contemporary art from the San Diego Zoo to Hillels throughout Southern California. Mr. Squire seeks to continue to make his art available for exhibition at accredited institutions throughout the world. The result is full time lending library of contemporary art that has been written up in papers nationally and internationally for the past couple of decades.
Public institutions face numerous challenges in today's modern economic climate when breaking down art barriers and exhibiting contemporary art- increasing operating costs and shrinking donor support. The Morris B. Squire Foundation keeps pace with these challenges absorbing almost the entire cost of the exhibition of their works with a public-minded objective of enabling the display of art for study.
