Words from Susan P. Larsen, Ph. D. -
The Clinton Hill/Allen Tran Foundation of Rancho Mirage, California
announces the first cycle of its annual grants to curators. The Curatorial Innovation Grant is designed to support the early stages of research and travel, to offer curators material support for their important role as creative thinkers bringing ideas to their institutions in the form of exhibition proposals. We are offering three grants of $5,000 each for exhibitions including artists born between 1920 and 1960. These are not intended as support for very new work or emerging artists. Please see our website, under the “Foundation” file for guidelines. Our deadline is September 1, 2010. The application is brief and we are eager to support a variety of projects.
Clinton Hill and Allen Tran lived in New York’s SOHO district for many years. Clinton taught at the City University of New York and exhibited at the Zabriskie Gallery and the Marilyn Pearl Gallery. His work is found in many of the nation’s most prominent museums. Clinton and Allen met in the U.S. Navy during World War II. They traveled widely and had a very large circle of friends. Upon their deaths in 2003, they established a foundation to care for Clinton’s work and to do charitable projects in the visual arts.
The Foundation is also happy to consider the donation of work to museums in America and abroad. You can find information on all of our programs at: clintonhillartist.com
Please pass this information to anyone you know that might benefit from the grants.
