A spend-down fund for acquisitions of American art by artists of color and about people of color.

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA) requests a $250,000 Challenge Grant in the United States History and Culture program to support The Heritage Fund for a Diverse Collection, an endowed acquisition fund which provides support for the acquisition of (i) art by American artists of color and/or (ii) art by American artists representing people of color (including African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, Native Americans, Native Hawaiians, and others) to broaden and enhance the Museum's collection of American art. As a three-to-one challenge grant, and thus a catalyst for community support, this grant will encourage widespread public participation in and support of the MFA's efforts to create a more inclusive collection representative of the many peoples and cultures in our community and in our nation.
