Bank of America is inviting proposals for its Art Conservation Project. Now in its tenth year, the project has enabled the preservation of more than one hundred and seventy projects in thirty-three countries on six continents. Projects represent different art movements, media, time periods, and cultures, but all reflect the creativity and passion of people around the world over hundreds, even thousands, of years.
To that end, grants will be awarded to museums and cultural institutions in support of efforts to conserve works of art that are in danger of deterioration, including works that have been designated as national treasures. To qualify for the program, works of art must be significant to the cultural heritage of the country or region, or important to the history of art; on view to the public (or will be on view once conservation is complete); and be a painting, work on paper, photograph, sculpture, architectural or archeological piece, important book or manuscript, tapestry or work of decorative or applied art in danger of deterioration.
See the Bank of America website for complete program guidelines, application instructions, and information about previous recipients.
