Project Sponsor

Bank of America Merrill Lynch

As a leading global supporter of the arts Bank of America Merrill Lynch partners with the some of the most extraordinary cultural institutions and events around the world, such as the Salzburg Festival. Our support is part of our unique arts and culture programme which is designed to connect individuals, organisations and cultures to help build stronger communities and foster creativity. As part of our Art Conservation Project, Bank of America Merrill Lynch has provided grants to museums in 27 countries supporting 72 conservation projects, including the restoration of Ecce Homo, by Titian at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna and a fragment of an altarpiece wing from 1430, The Bad Thief on the Cross/Saint John the Baptist, at the Städel Museum in Frankfurt. Additionally, through our Art in Our Communities® programme, we have loaned more than 60 exhibitions from our corporate collection to museums around the world. We are proud to sponsor Il trovatore at this year’s Salzburg Festival and to share this world class production with the community.
