The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art has received a $2 million grant that will allow the Hartford-based venue to share works of art from its American collections with three southern museums.
The funding comes from the Art Bridges Foundation.
“The Art Bridges Cohort Program allows us to share our exceptional American collections with wider audiences,” Wadsworth Director Matthew Hargraves said in a statement. “We are thrilled to welcome great objects from institutions in the American South that will expand our understanding and appreciation of the diversity of American art and material culture. This exchange resonates with the current reinterpretation of our own collection, and we are proud to be leading this effort with the generous support of Art Bridges.”
Under the rules of the grant, the Wadsworth will co-organize a series of traveling exhibitions with Columbia (South Carolina) Museum of Art; Mobile (Alabama) Museum of Art; and the Montgomery (Alabama) Museum of Fine Arts. The exhibitions will be known as the American South Consortium. The exhibition tours will launch in the spring and conclude in early 2026.
One mission of Art Bridges is to expand access to American art in all regions across the country. To date, Art Bridges has partnered with nearly 220 museums nationwide.
