Historic Deerfield – $25,000

Unnamed Figures: Black Presence and Absence in the early American North

Unnamed Figures is an exhibition and publication developed by the American Folk Art Museum in New York that explores the often-unacknowledged presence of Black makers and subjects in the visual and material culture of the 18th and early 19th centuries in the North American North. Historic Deerfield, an outdoor history museum in Deerfield, MA, will use this grant to develop programs to deepen public discussion of these themes and to bring the exhibition to Historic Deerfield in Spring 2024 following its origination (and only other showing) at AFAM.
