Terra Foundation For American Arts
|Category: Arts & Culture
The Foundation supports exhibitions that enlarge the understanding and appreciation of historical American art made between 1500 and 1980. The Exhibition grants support exhibitions that take place internationally or in Chicago. The exhibitions may be aimed at the general public, scholars, or both. Exhibitions that take place only in the United States but outside of Chicago, must present historical American art in an international context and reach a scholarly audience. The Foundation has a particular interest in exhibitions that add an international dimension to the study of presentation of historical American art or take place in Chicago, the location of the Foundation’s headquarters. “International dimensions” vary by project, but include a venue outside the United States; a focused thesis that makes a significant contribution to scholarship on historical American art in an international context; and an international curatorial team. The Foundation encourages exhibitions that include one or more of the following: new ways of thinking about American art, scholarly interpretation and a contextualized presentation, related publications or scholarly texts, and related educational programming. In addition, preference is given to cross-cultural dialogue on historical American art. A letter of inquiry must precede any formal grant proposal.
