The Lennie Pierro Memorial Arts Foundation (LPMAF) was created in 2002 in honor of longtime Village resident Lennie Pierro, the co-founder of the Pierro Gallery in South Orange. It was Pierro’s dream to bring a Smith sculpture to his hometown.

With the financial support of The Village and donations from hundreds of private individuals, the LPMAF was able to raise sufficient funds to site, fabricate, and install TAU in Meadowland Park in 2008. Maintenance and promotion of the sculpture, as well as related arts education programs in district schools, continue to be funded by the Pierro Foundation.

The Lennie Pierro Memorial Arts Foundation is registered as a charitable organization under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Send donations and inquiries to 71 South Orange Avenue, Box 335, South Orange, NJ 07079. For further information contact mail@pierrofoundation@org.
