VistaJet has sponsored the exhibition and tour of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller, an auction entirely dedicated to raising funds for philanthropic causes.
The sale, consisting of numerous categories, will be conducted by Christie’s and will include a highlights exhibition tour in Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles and New York.
“We are excited and honored to partner with Christie’s to present to the world the spectacular exhibition and world tour of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller,” said Thomas Flohr, Founder and Chairman of VistaJet. “Since I founded the company in 2004, art and philanthropy have always had a significant role, as passions we share with many of our clients. Offering curated experiences – in the areas of art and design, hospitality, travel and culture – is a cornerstone of the VistaJet brand, and the sponsorship of such an important collection is a way for VistaJet to support not only the arts, but David and Peggy Rockefeller’s philanthropic endeavors.”
The highlights from this collection will be unveiled for the first time in Hong Kong on 24 November, marking the start of a global tour for the world’s top art collectors, in addition to the general public.
After Hong Kong, the exhibition will travel to Christie’s flagship locations in London, Los Angeles and New York, revealing new elements of this multi-category collection with each stop.
VistaJet will host an exclusive program of client events including rare experiences, art forums and a lecture series. The global tour will culminate in the auction of the collection at Christie’s Rockefeller Center Galleries in New York in Spring 2018.
To further enrich the global exhibition tour, VistaJet has created The Rockefeller Experience which will allow up to 10 guests travelling with VistaJet on one of its 72 silver and red jets to New York, a rare opportunity for a behind the scenes discovery tour of the Rockefeller collection, before enjoying a multi-taste feast at an exclusive Upstate New York venue. Guests will then be invited for a personal tour of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller exhibition in New York, and to join the live auction at Christie’s New York with leading art experts.
Sales of The
Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller will be conducted in
keeping with David Rockefeller’s pledge to direct the majority of
his wealth to philanthropy and provide for the cultural,
educational, medical and environmental causes long supported by
both David and Peggy Rockefeller. All the Estate proceeds will be
donated to charities, directly benefiting the philanthropic
missions that have been maintained by the family for decades.
