Terra Foundation adds Huey Copeland and Clare Muñana to board of directors

CHICAGO, IL.- The Terra Foundation for American Art welcomed Huey Copeland and Clare Muñana to its board of directors. Copeland is the Andrew W. Mellon Professor at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. (2020–22); and Muñana is president of Ancora Associates, Inc., the international management consulting firm she founded in 1987, and the Blue Foundation, a family foundation.

“Huey Copeland and Clare Muñana are ambassadors for American art who bring deep experience to the Terra Foundation’s board of directors,” said Joseph P. Gromacki, chair of the Terra Foundation for American Art board of directors. “Dr. Copeland’s interdisciplinary art historical approach and Ms. Muñana’s work in international collaborations and education make their perspectives integral to future deliberations to further the foundation’s mission to foster the exploration and understanding of American visual art for audiences around the world.”

In addition to his role at the National Gallery of Art, Copeland has been art history faculty since 2005 at Northwestern University, where he also enjoyed affiliations to programs in African American, critical, gender, and performance studies. On January 1, 2021, he will assume a new post, BFC Presidential Associate Professor, in the Department of History of Art at the University of Pennsylvania. His research and teaching focus on global modern and contemporary art with an emphasis on articulations of Blackness in the modern visual field.

Copeland currently serves on the International Advisory Board of Art History, the Curatorial Board of Iceberg Projects, and the Board of the International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs. In 2019, his contributions to the field were recognized by the High Museum of Art with the David C. Driskell Prize in African American Art and Art History. An editor of October and a contributing editor of Artforum, Copeland has also published in numerous journals, including American Art, Art Journal, ASAP/J, and The Brooklyn Rail, as well as in international exhibition catalogues and essay collections. Copeland earned a BA from the University of Michigan, and both an MA and PhD in the history of art from the University of California, Berkeley.

Muñana served on the Terra Foundation’s board of directors from 2009–14, serving five of her eight eligible years. She has worked with nonprofit and public and private sector clients in the United States, Europe, Africa, and Latin America, and has a strong interest in education and youth. Muñana has worked on various Chicago City Hall projects and served for 10 years as vice president of the City of Chicago Board of Education.

Muñana is a trustee and chair of the International Committee of the Aspen Institute, and she serves as a board member of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, the Middle East Investment Initiative, and After School Matters, as well as has served on numerous other civic boards and commissions. Muñana earned a BA from Boston College, an MA in international economics and politics from the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University, and an MBA from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University. She received the Chevalier de l’Ordre National du Mérite for her work in the arts and education in Chicago.

“The foundation’s staff and board warmly welcome Ms. Muñana and Dr. Copeland to our board of directors,” said Sharon Corwin, Terra Foundation president and CEO. “Our board members are dedicated leaders who bring a variety of backgrounds and experiences to the foundation. They actively work to stimulate conversations about American art around the world to reach new audiences and grow robust scholarly networks. I have been learning from Dr. Copeland for decades since we were both graduate students at UC Berkeley, and Ms. Muñana has already become an important thought partner. I am so excited to be working with them both!”
