 The Project

American art from the Howard University Collection is part of a national touring exhibition. This major exhibition and conservation project was a three-year collaborative effort by a network of cultural institutions. It was organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art and The Studio Museum of Harlem, in association with the Williamstown Art Conservation Center,  Howard University, and five other Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

The project integrated scholarship, heritage, history and art conservation, and its principal funding came from AT&T and the Ford Motor Company. This preservation of 19th- and 20th-century African American, Native American, and other American art provides a unique opportunity to see the work of African American artists in the context of the work of their peers. The works selected address one or more of the following themes: “Forever Free: Emancipation Visualized,” “The First Americans,” “Training the Head, Hand and the Heart,” “The American Portrait Gallery,” “American Expressionism,” and “Modern Lives, Modern Impulses.”
