Walter Storms Foundation

Walter Storms, who opened his gallery in Munich in 1977, helped found the Society of the Friends of the Lenbachhaus and is now the longest-serving member of its board. In recognition of his longstanding close ties to the Lenbachhaus, he established the Walter Storms Foundation.

Its mission is to support the Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus und Kunstbau München's exhibition activities with permanent loans of works from Walter Storms's personal collection. It was created as an unincorporated trust by a city council resolution on December 18, 2013, and is administered by the State Capital of Munich.
