The great master of homoerotic art,
Tom of Finland, first began this non-profit Foundation to
preserve his own vast catalog of work and soon after
expanded its goals to support and nurture all erotic art.
Since then, the Foundation has built its membership and
instituted many events and programs to celebrate and
nurture erotic art and artists, while educating the
public about the importance of freedom of expression. The
Foundation is a resource for artists, collectors,
students, curators, and all art-lovers. Yearly
memberships start at $35 and include the `Dispatch'
newsletter and Erotic Art Gallery by Mail.
