Mnuchin Gallery is located in the historic five-story townhouse at 45 East 78th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side and is dedicated to presenting museum-quality exhibitions of postwar and contemporary art. Owner and founder Robert Mnuchin, whose passion for the arts developed through his childhood and his longstanding career in the financial sector as the head of the trading desk at Goldman Sachs, began a successful second career as an art dealer in 1992, co-founding C&M Arts in 1992, and the bi-coastal operation, L&M Arts in 2005. In 2013, the gallery was renamed Mnuchin Gallery under the direction of Robert Mnuchin and his partner, Sukanya Rajaratnam.
Continuing a tradition begun over two decades ago, Mnuchin Gallery presents thoughtfully curated, carefully researched exhibitions, documented with scholarly publications. Its first year of programming comprised two major solo shows of Ellsworth Kelly and Donald Judd, each highlighting bodies of work that had never been the subject of a focused exhibition. Both were critical and commercial successes that resulted in important placements with various American museums. Advising institutional and prominent private clients has remained a core focus, with particular expertise in artists such as Franz Kline, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock and Clyfford Still, among others. The gallery has also selectively promoted reclusive primary artists such as David Hammons and El Anatsui on a collaborative basis with exciting results. Combining the historical with the contemporary has been something the gallery has done masterfully, most recently with "Casting Modernity: Bronze in the Twentieth Century," which saw works as diverse as Matisse and Koons, brought together in what has been arguably its most acclaimed exhibition to date.
The gallery is dedicated to promoting and showcasing emerging contemporary artists from the city of St. Petersburg in Russia.
Originally established in 2005 in Saint Petersburg, as an exclusive setting to present works of local artists to a Russian audience, Erarta Galleries has since expanded its vision promoting the reawakening of Russian art and culture to an international audience. Our aim is to free Russian contemporary art from conventionality and stereotypes.
In today¹s exciting renaissance of contemporary Russian art, a new generation of artists is emerging, many of whom Erarta Galleries is pleased to exhibit. Different in form, symbolism and technique, this new avant-guarde is characterised by a reinvigorated sense of freedom.
Erarta Galleries are present in Saint Petersburg, London, New York and Zurich.

Every year the French Heritage Language Program helps hundreds of young Americans and new immigrants make the most of their French here in the United States.
In the US, French is spoken by hundreds of thousands of people, who come from Haiti, West Africa, Canada, and Europe. French is also spoken by Americans from New England and Louisiana. Yet for many of them, especially new immigrants and lower socio-economic status families, having the possibility to continue learning or keeping up their French is often a challenge.
The French Heritage Language Program is a program of the non-profit foundation FACE, in partnership with the French Embassy in the United States. Since 2005, it has helped over 2,500 children, students and adults from underserved communities of francophone background enrich their knowledge of the French language and maintain strong bonds with their respective cultures and identities.
"Making French an asset for new Americans"
The primary objectives of FHLP program are to help these students make the most of their French linguistic and cultural heritage here in the United States. By strengthening their knowledge of the French language and reinforcing their cultural identities, our students develop strong bilingual skills and so increase their opportunities for success in their new environment, both academically and professionally. They can take valuable examinations facilitating access to higher education and expand their perspectives for job careers in the US. In doing so, French becomes a strong asset not only for our students but also for educators, schools, families and communities.
Through university partnerships, our program also contributes to scholarly research in the field of heritage language learning. As a program embedded in schools and community centers, it is a place for pedagogical and methodological exploration, and a way to build new partnerships. We develop curriculum models that can be replicated and adapted in other cities in the United States.
The French Heritage Language Program works closely with the Internationals Network for Public Schools, which includes seventeen high schools for new immigrants in New York City, Washington DC and California, all working at the development of models for global education.
Our program is offered in New York, Florida, Maine and Boston and currently serves 700 students from elementary to high school levels.
There is high demand for French Heritage classes across the country and we are looking for new partners to help us set up new programs where there is need.
In New York, the French Heritage Language Program currently serves 485 students at elementary and high school levels, and in several community centers.
- Bronx International High School
- Claremont International High School (Bronx)
- International Community High School (Bronx)
- International High School at Crotona (Bronx)

Why do the Philippine Jesuits need your help?
As soon as a young man desiring to become a priest enters the Society of Jesus at Sacred Heart Novitiate (SHN), Quezon City, the Philippine Province takes care of his board and lodging, his education and basic formation for the next eleven or twelve years. At the end of this period, the Jesuit is ordained a priest.
Because of the desire of the Society of Jesus that this priest or brother becomes an expert in his field, he is usually sent for further studies, called “Special Studies”. Usually, this is a doctorate degree; in some cases, a master’s degree. The “Special Studies” is normally pursued outside the Philippines, often in Europe or the United States, and is funded by the Philippine Province.
Once this priest or brother obtains his degree, he is finally assigned to the apostolate. More often than not, he is sent to an educational institution, like the university. Only then does the Philippine Province cease financial support. The educational or other apostolic institutions then provides for his needs.
Upon retirement, the Jesuit returns to the auspices of the Philippine Province. The Province provides for board, lodging and medical care, until he dies and is buried at Sacred Heart Novitiate (SHN).
And so it is the Philippine Province who takes care of the young man in his formation, stretching for about 16 years, and in retirement, for another 15 - 20 years, until his death and burial at SHN (where he begins and also ends his religious life)—having given all of his life to God!
Many alumni of our universities and schools are understandably more than eager to donate to their alma mater, and we thank them for their generosity. Unfortunately, they assume that they are also donating to the Philippine Province --which is not true. That is why we appeal to you that the Philippine Province, not just Jesuit universities and schools, needs your massive support!
When you donate, write your check to “Philippine Jesuit Foundation” and at the memo line indicate: “Formation Fund” and/or “Elderly and Infirm Fund”.
We thank you for your help.
