DeCordova Awarded Prestigious Grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts

LINCOLN, MA.- DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum received a $75,000 grant for exhibition programming from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

The funding supports two upcoming exhibitions: Temporary Structures: Performing Architecture in Contemporary Art, on view from September 17 –December 31, 2011 and Julianne Swartz: How deep is your, a sculpture exhibition in the fall of 2012.

The grant to deCordova reflects The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts’ focus on supporting the work of “a challenging and often experimental nature” and encouraging “curatorial research leading to new scholarship in the field of contemporary art.”

In addition, deCordova announced that an anonymous donor has pledged a matching $75,000 gift supporting exhibitions in honor of the Warhol Foundation award, which the donor feels exemplifies the exciting course of the institution and the curatorial program since Director Dennis Kois took the helm in 2008.

This pledge leverages the Warhol award to a total of $150,000 of exhibitions support.

“DeCordova receiving this Warhol Foundation award—among the most prestigious of contemporary art grants—speaks to the incredible job our curatorial team has done in transforming the exhibition program,” said Kois.

“In particular, this is a vote of confidence in the experimental, creative shows being organized by Dina Deitsch, Associate Curator of Contemporary Art, working under Nick Capasso, Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs.”
