Kipton Cronkite is head of investor relations for alternative investments (say that three times fast) with Bank of America. He’s also on the art and party circuit. Suddenly, he seems to be everywhere (here he is in Vanity Fair.)
At Art Basel Miami, he hosted a party with Asprey sponsoring, for his company KiptonArt. Barron’s profiled him recently:
He pulled together a blue-chip panel of art-world experts and had them screen artists who had submitted portfolios of their work online. The artists seen as most promising would get help from those experts to get to the stage where their work could be exhibited in a gallery.
Cronkite’s Website, KiptonArt, now has 650 registered artists, and has hosted more than 30 events to bring together young artists and collectors. “Some are [now] getting representation at great galleries,” Cronkite says.
So we’re curious to hear more about their success stories.
