2016 (Duration 1 year, 8 months)
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — Terra Foundation for American Art, which has its headquarters in Chicago, supports and collaborates on exhibitions, research, and educational programs to further scholarship and dialog on American art. In addition to grantmaking, it has its own collection of American art, which was collected by the late Daniel J. Terra, United States Ambassador-at-Large for Cultural Affairs from 1981-89. The collection is thoroughly documented and the Terra Foundation makes it available for scholarly exhibitions. The Terra Foundation is spearheading an effort to draw attention to Chicago’s central role in advancing art and design with a coordinated, citywide initiative in 2018 called, “Art Design Chicago.” The initiative includes exhibits, public programs, publications, and academic conferences. Award funds support marketing and communication activities related to Art Design Chicago.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Terra Foundation for American Art $100,000 between 1978 and 2017.
