This exhibition focuses on the power of endowment and features permanent collection works purchased by the Art Museum with funds provided by the Grace endowment. The Art Museum has acquired over forty works of art with investment income from the Connie F. and Richard E. Grace Endowment Fund. Thanks to these enduring gifts, the Art Museum will continue to collect and conserve works for generations to come.
Purchases made by the Art Museum for the permanent collection are funded entirely by annual income from endowments. The Mickey Shook Memorial Fund was initiated at The Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette in the 1980s for the purpose of preserving works in the permanent collection and acquiring works by Indiana artists.
The Connie F. and Richard E. Grace Endowment Fund began in 1997 with contributions by Dr. and Mrs. Grace. It is managed by the Art Museum Foundation and income is restricted for acquisition and/or conservation of works of art for the permanent collection.
We hope you will enjoy this exhibit and consider a current gift or a planned gift toward endowing the future of the Art Museum’s growing collection.
