It is pretty neat how Andy Warhol set up a foundation with one mission: the advancement of the visual arts.

From the Foundation’s site:

When Andy Warhol died unexpectedly on February 22, 1987, he left a vast and complicated inventory of works of art and personal possessions. His will dictated that his entire estate, with the exception of a few modest legacies to family members, should be used to create a foundation dedicated to the “advancement of the visual arts.”
