The Star of Hope Foundation was established as an artist-endowed foundation by the late American Pop artist, Robert Indiana, who lived in the historic Star of Hope building in Vinalhaven, Maine until his death in 2018.  The artist planned for his valuable estate to be managed by the Star of Hope Foundation which he himself set up in 2016. 

Beginning in 2019, the Foundation has made significant and ongoing stabilization efforts of its real estate holdings, including the historic Star of Hope Lodge on Main Street in Vinalhaven.  Star of Hope has teamed up with Vinalhaven community to provide space to display student art and historic exhibitions in the large front windows.

The Board of Directors is developing a strategy for long-term use of the real estate and the best and highest use of Mr. Indiana’s art collection.
