PEW VISUAL ARTS PROGRAM ANNOUNCES 2004 AWARDS:
$899,782 AWARDED TO TEN ORGANIZATIONS.

The Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative, a visual arts artistic development program funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts and administered by The University of the Arts, has announced its 2004 grant awards totaling $899,782. Since its inception in 1997, PEI has invested nearly $6 million in exhibitions in the Philadelphia region-a commitment that makes this program unique among private foundations in the United States in both focus and level of financial support.

Exhibition grantees in 2004 include:
Abington Art Center ($122,490) to commission J. Morgan Puett to create a new work in an abandoned Quaker meeting house on the Center’s grounds.
Asian Arts Initiative ($200,000) for Chinatown In/Flux, a community arts project featuring the works of contemporary Asian-American artists.
Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts ($161,730) for an installation by Ellen Harvey responding to the museum’s architecture and collections.
Philadelphia Museum of Art ($118,000) for Pontormo, Bronzino and the Medici: The Transformation of the Renaissance Portrait.
University of Pennsylvania Architectural Archives ($200,000) for the first survey of the architecture and design of Antonin and Noemi Raymond.

PEI has also continued an important aspect of the capacity-building component of its program in the form of planning grants. Planning grant recipients in 2004 include:
The Fabric Workshop and Museum ($20,000) for a comprehensive exploration of new paradigms in community art initiatives.
Institute of Contemporary Art ($20,000) for planning for a group exhibition exploring Martin Kippenberger’s influence in art of the past two decades.
The Print Center ($18,397) for planning an exhibition in public sites utilizing the camera obscura with Ann Hamilton, Vera Lutter, and Abelardo Morell.
The Rosenbach Museum & Library ($20,000) for exploring the transformation of the traditional visitor experience of the historic house through artists’ interventions and performances.
Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery, The University of the Arts ($19,165) for planning an exhibition of heretofore marginalized or overlooked women in Pop Art.

PEI grants are awarded on a competitive basis and are selected by a distinguished panel of visual arts professionals from around the country. PEI’s 2004 panel included: Richard Armstrong (panel chair), Director, Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, PA; Alan Chong, Curator of the Collection, Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston, MA; Mary Jane Jacob, independent curator, Chicago, Il; Silvia Karman Cubina, Director, The Moore Space, Miami, FL; Christine Kim, Assistant Curator, Studio Museum in Harlem, NY; Michael Monroe, independent curator, Reston, VA; Joseph Rosa, Curator of Architecture and Design, Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, CA, and Christina Yang, Curator of Visual Art and New Media, The Kitchen, NY.
