The Davidoff Art Initiative supports contemporary art and artists in the Caribbean, strengthens art organizations that work to promote Caribbean art, and fosters cultural engagement between the Caribbean and the rest of the world. It brings opportunity and visibility to the art and culture of the wider Caribbean region—including the Dominican Republic, where much of Davidoff’s production and many of the employees are based—and it extends the company’s long-standing commitment to artistry, craftsmanship, community, and quality.
