Andres Santo Domingo and his wife Lauren are certainly dedicated to making the world a better place. Santo Domingo grew up in New York City and is one socialite that’s done his part to help his hometown grow, change, and thrive.
In 2002, Andres Santo Domingo founded Kemado Records with Tom Clapp. The New York label supports mostly rock, indie rock, alternative rock, metal, and hard rock, and is located in Brooklyn. In 2008, Santo Domingo introduced Mexican Summer, Kemado’s sister label, which focuses on digital and limited edition vinyl LPs. Through his record labels, Andres Santo Domingo strongly supports independent music.
Outside of his music business, Santo Domingo and his wife also advocate for the arts. They have been on hosting committees for events benefitting the Art Production Fund, which helps artists succeed in their endeavors. Many artists supported by the Art Production Fund would never be able to complete their projects without their help.
Lauren and Andres Santo Domingo have also been involved with NYC arts through the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and the Metrpolitan Museum of Art. They helped with the opening of “Schiaparelli & Prada: Impossible Conversations” at the Met, which was produced by the Costume Institute.
Outside of the art world, Andres and Lauren Santo Domingo have worked with DKMS, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the fight against blood cancer and one of the largest bone marrow donor databases across the globe. They are committed to helping improve the quality of life for all citizens of the world as well, as can be seen from their involvement with Conservation International and Christie’s Green Auction.
