2019 Annual Gala: Marc Porter Accepts Philanthropic Leadership Award on Behalf of Christie’s

LOS ANGELES, April 7, 2019 — Marc Porter, Chairman, Christie’s Americas, accepts a Philanthropic Leadership Award on behalf of Christie’s. He oversaw last year’s record-shattering sale of the Peggy and David Rockefeller Collection, which raised more than $800 million for charity. In his acceptance speech, he notes that building an art collection should not be viewed just as an investment, but as a passion project that can be used to effect change well beyond one's lifetime.
