Endowment (and bridge funding) for the Center for Historic American Visual Culture, including salary for a part-time director and a part-time graphic arts cataloger, as well as expenses for conferences, workshops, and seminars.

AAS proposes to endow a Center for Historic American Visual Culture with the mission of providing educational opportunities, promoting the awareness of AAS's collections and other visual resources, and stimulating research and intellectual inquiry into American visual culture. It will accomplish its goals by offering fellowships, exhibitions, workshops, seminars, publications, and conferences and by improving access to AAS's unmatched collections of printed graphic arts materials. The Center was launched in 2008 with a foundation grant for pilot activities. It has exceeded expectations in every category of evaluative measure that we laid out, and the Council and staff of AAS are committed to making the Center a permanent feature of the Society's academic programming. The requested $500,000 grant and the $1,500,000 in matching funds will provide bridge funding to underwrite the operations of the Center as the permanent endowment is raised.
