Bank Of America Art Conservation Project Announces Call For 2014 Grant Submissions

Bank of America continues to expand its global effort to preserve culturally important works of art, today announcing a request for grant applications from global art institutions. Applications for the Bank of America Art Conservation Project are welcome from all nonprofit cultural institutions with significant works of art requiring conservation. The deadline for submissions is January 17, 2014 and applicants can submit proposals online at http://museums.bankofamerica.com/arts/conservation/apply.

The Bank of Art Conservation Project is a unique program that provides grants to nonprofit museums throughout the world to conserve historically or culturally significant works of art that are in danger of deterioration. Since the program’s launch in 2010, Bank of America has provided grants to museums in 25 countries for 57 conservation projects. These include Gustave Courbet’s monumental “The Painter’s Studio” at Musée d’Orsay in Paris, Pablo Picasso’s “Woman Ironing” at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, a 16th century eight-fold screen by Kanō Eitoku, designated as a national treasure by the Japanese government, at the Tokyo National Museum and a collection of paintings by Gerard Sekoto at the Johannesburg Art Gallery.

“Art has a unique ability to both connect people across cultures and help communities thrive,” said Rena DeSisto, International Corporate Social Responsibility and Global Arts and Culture executive at Bank of America. “This program allows us to have a direct impact on art conservation worldwide while shining a light on the need for employing conservation professionals, making it more viable for works of art to be loaned or kept on display and to preserve these important cultural treasures for generations to come.”

The Bank of America Art Conservation Project is a key component of the bank’s global commitment to supporting the arts, which includes a multi-tiered program of sponsorships and grants as well as loans of full exhibitions from its own collection to nonprofit museums around the world.
