The Hill Collection

Who are the Hills?
J. Tomilson and Janine Hill are longtime art collectors and philanthropists based in New York. Their collection is known for its depth—meaning that they collect multiple works by each artist—and for spanning time periods, from Baroque bronzes to young contemporary artists.

Who owns the works on view at the Hill Art Foundation?
Exhibitions at the Hill Art Foundation include works on loan from the Hill Collection, which comprises the personal art collection of J. Tomilson and Janine Hill and other works that they have irrevocably dedicated to charitable purposes, as well as works from other artists, collections and institutions.

Is the art in your exhibitions for sale?
No, the Hill Art Foundation is a non-profit exhibition and educational space, not a commercial gallery. Our mission is to expand the relationship between art and the viewer through rotating exhibitions and ongoing arts education programs.

Does the Hill Art Foundation have a permanent collection?
The Hill Art Foundation has a small number of permanently installed works, including a 2013 Christopher Wool sculpture, a Robert Gober drain, and a 1533 stained-glass window by Valentin Bousch. Alongside these permanent installations, the Foundation presents a rotating program of 3–4 exhibitions a year. Each exhibition typically combines works from the Foundation collection with loans from the Hill Collection, partner institutions, and artists.
