Terra Foundation of Art

The Terra Foundation for American Art is dedicated to fostering exploration, understanding, and enjoyment of the visual arts of the United States for national and international audiences. Recognizing the importance of experiencing original works of art, the foundation provides opportunities for interaction and study, beginning with the presentation and growth of its own art collection in Chicago. To further cross-cultural dialogue on American art, the foundation supports and collaborates on innovative exhibitions, research, and educational programs. Implicit in such activities is the belief that art has the potential both to distinguish cultures and to unite them.

The Terra Foundation offers a wide range of grant and fellowship opportunities for both emerging and established scholars, including academic awards, residencies, travel grants, and visiting professorships, among others. Undertaken collaboratively with our diverse network of institutional partners, these academic opportunities enrich and expand worldwide scholarly engagement by:

Bringing together international scholars from diverse academic backgrounds and geographies,
Inspiring a robust cross-cultural and interdisciplinary dialogue that explores American art in a global context, and
Disseminating scholarly resources worldwide.
