Founder & President
Anthony Quinn Foundation

Katherine Quinn is the widow of legendary actor and artist, Anthony Quinn. From 1985 until his death in 2001, she worked very closely with Anthony in his creative life as a painter, sculptor and writer. To carry on his legacy, Ms. Quinn established the Anthony Quinn Foundation in 2001, dedicated to promoting the importance of the arts in all areas of education. In 2004, she published a coffee table book, “Anthony Quinn’s Eye: A Lifetime of Creating and Collecting Art,” which was distributed by Norton & Co. and was the catalyst for a traveling exhibition that toured U.S. museums for two years. A new retrospective is currently being prepared for an international tour. The exhibit will parallel the mission of the Foundation, raising awareness of the role the arts play in everyday life. Ms. Quinn was born and raised in Long Island, New York and graduated from SUNY Stony Brook with a B.A. in Political Science. She currently resides in Bristol, Rhode Island with her and Anthony’s two children, Antonia and Ryan.
