Legends & Legacies


On Thursday, October 7, the King Arts Complex held their 14th annual Legends & Legacies Award Ceremony and Reception at the Lincoln Theatre. The 2021 event celebrated Ann and Ron Pizzuti, legendary contemporary art collectors who have shown a commitment to freedom through social justice, human rights, cultural democracy, artistic excellence, and service. With their 2018 donation of The Pizzuti Collection to the Columbus Museum of Art, they have created a legacy for decades to come. The Pizzutis are among the nation’s

foremost collectors of Black art, with works by over 100 African, Afro-Cuban and African American artists.


This year’s celebration raised over $200,000 to support the many arts education programs offered by The King Arts Complex. Guests enjoyed live music and a stunning ice sculpture of a Pizzuti building during the reception. Among the many guests in attendance were Joyce Beatty, Mayor Andrew Ginther, former Mayor Michael B. Coleman, Alex Shumate, Algenon L. Marbley, and The Ohio State University’s Athletic Director Gene Smith. For more information on King Arts Complex, visit kingartscomplex.com.
