The Lawrence website is an information resource to assist those seeking information on the art and legacy of Jacob and Gwendolyn Knight Lawrence. Established in 2000, it is supported by the Jacob and Gwendolyn Knight Lawrence Foundation. The website and Lawrence Foundation-supported programs are the Foundation's primary initiatives.


The Jacob and Gwen Lawrence Foundation supports its designated programs but does not accept unsolicited funding requests. The endowed programs described on this website have been funded by the personal estate of Jacob and Gwen Lawrence.
