The word endeavor has appeared in 299 articles on NYTimes.com in the past year, including on April 25 in “An Art Patron’s Mission to Share Her Collection With the World” by Laura Rysman:
“Contemporary art,” Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo said, “is the best instrument we have to render our world a bit more comprehensible.” That conviction has driven her to become one of Europe’s most prominent collectors, as well as a patron of living artists and an evangelist of contemporary art.
… If art is essential to broaden our understanding of our times and ourselves, then amassing a collection might be seen as an endeavor that comes with immense opportunity, and perhaps responsibility. “A collector that’s going to count today,” said Arturo Galansino, director general of the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi and curator of the exhibition, “needs to leave the ivory tower and create these kinds of collaborations for the greater good of society.”
