From Levitt Pavillions:
For the month of April, GIA’s photo banner features artists and projects supported by the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage (The Center). The Center is a multidisciplinary grantmaker dedicated to fostering a vibrant cultural community in the greater Philadelphia region. Established in 2005 to house the cultural funding programs of The Pew Charitable Trusts, The Center recently marked its tenth year of grantmaking in support of a broad spectrum of cultural organizations and artists— from major civic institutions, to independent artists and curators, to artist-driven and community-based organizations.
The Getty Foundation has awarded nearly $14 million in grants to support their second edition of Pacific Standard Time, a regional collaborative effort of 46 art exhibitions and events from San Diego to Santa Barbara opening in 2017. Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA will explore art of the Latin American diaspora.
In Unmasking the Hidden Attraction of the Arts, Bill O’Brien of the National Endowment for the Arts discusses the growing role of artists and the arts in cross-sector work, including in healthcare and science.
By Sandra Abma, writing for CBC News:
I became the Executive Director of the Kentucky Foundation for Women, a private philanthropy focusing on feminist art for social change, in September 1998 and met Claudine that October at my first national meeting of Grantmakers in the Arts. She stood out as a leader with her radiant smile and formidable presence. As I came to learn, she also stood out as a connector, a steadfast ally to all who believe in the power of art and culture to create a more just and beautiful world.
Since the passing of Claudine Brown, others who knew her have shared memories of Brown as an inspirational leader and arts advocate.
