Construction, reinstallation, and interpretation of new galleries and period rooms featuring American Colonial and Federal art, as well as endowment for conservation.

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA) requests a We the People Challenge Grant of $1 million to support the construction, reinstallation, and interepretation of its new galleries and period rooms featuring American Colonial and Federal Art. An endowment created by the grant and matching funds will also support the conservation of works to be included in these galleries. This collection, which ranks among the best in the world, will be exhibited in a new four-story wing that will serve as the centerpiece of a building expansion project scheduled for completion in 2009. We the People support will allow the MFA to tell the story of the birth of the United States, in all of its richness, through its reinstalled collection of American Colonial and Federal Art and through a variety of interpretive elements that are integral to the galleries.
