Three art foundations have teamed up to help artists and nonprofit arts organizations in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy: The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation and  the Lambent Foundation.

The Warhol foundation gives $1 million to affected visual arts organizations and $1 million to individual artists.

Through a Web site called Emergency Grants, the Warhol foundation will make its grants to visual arts organizations; the Rauschenberg foundation to other cultural organizations. The three foundations will jointly assist individual artists through the New York Foundation for the Arts, which will administer those grants.

The grants are made possible in part by the Warhol foundation’s increased art sales, including this week’s sale at Christie’s, which brought in more than $17 million.
