Since its founding in 1982, the Henry Luce Foundation’s American Art Program has supported wide-ranging collection projects and exhibitions at art museums in all 50 states. In commemoration of the program’s 40th anniversary, the Foundation has organized a yearlong series of virtual conversations moderated by field leaders and Luce grantees, past and present.
Deliberately forward-facing rather than retrospective, the Henry Luce Foundation Conversations on American Art and Museums explore what the best futures of American art and museums might look like. The participants will explore the role of the visual arts in an open and equitable society, and the capacity of art museums to challenge accepted histories, elevate underrepresented voices, and host the critical conversations in which we need to engage.
