Davis, Dana Martin 2016

Eloquent art collector Dana Martin Davis returns to Klein Artist Works to speak about the fundamental role art plays in bettering human life, both on universal and individual levels.

“To [make art] from your perspective—that’s what you need to own first because no one else can speak from your perspective, your point. of view. That’s your context. That’s what has to be authentic, that’s what has to be legitimate…. And that’s the best way to be an artist.”

Dana Martin Davis is the former CCO and principal at Davis Steel & Iron Company, a collector dedicated to living and emerging artists, and a painter. Davis is a board member for the Metal Museum and The Moving Poets, an executive board member for the Women’s Impact Fund, and a founding board member for NY Art Farm and the Women’s Leadership Initiative.
