    • Synopsis
    • Collector and philanthropologist Agnes “Aggie” Gund sounded a rallying cry that reverberated throughout the art world when she sold a beloved painting from her collection to fund criminal-justice reform. Roy Lichtenstein’s Masterpiece sold for an impressive 165 million dollars, and Aggie’s nonprofit initiative—the Art for Justice Fund—was born, bridging “blue chip” art and serving the common good. Aggie offers access to the world of a woman who has perpetually defied what’s expected of her.
