Worcester Art Museum – $30,000

The Price of Luxury in American Art (1675-1870)

This grant will support the reinstallation of the permanent collection of American art at the Worcester Art Museum in Worcester, MA. The reinstallation will connect important portraiture and other fine art with the museum's significant collection of early American decorative arts by examining the human and environmental costs of nation-building as reflected in the beautiful luxury goods acquired and collected by early Americans. This project is part of the museum's effort to ensure that people "who have historically been excluded from the narrative of American art, including Black, Indigenous, and other people of color, feel a true sense of representation and belonging at the Worcester Art Museum and experience an authentic connection to the art objects and stories found within our reimagined galleries."
