Paris Hilton Creates Fund For Women Digital Artists

Janice K. Johnson


Hotel heiress, media personality and entrepreneur Paris Hilton started a fund for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to support the acquisition of digital art by women artists.

The fund will acquire art by women who have diverse artistic practices, including artificial intelligence, augmented reality, animation, photography, performance, video and non-fungible tokens, commonly known as NFTs.

“We are grateful to Paris Hilton for her initiative to bring more digital art by women artists into our collection,” LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director Michael Govan said. “LACMA has always been interested in experimentation and risk-taking in art, and this initiative will help the museum — and Los Angeles — continue to evolve into an important center for digital art.”
