Mission Statement

The primary mission of the Wyeth Foundation for American Art is to encourage the study, appreciation, and recognition of excellence in American art.  The Foundation supports selected programs of scholarship, research, conservation and exhibitions with institutions and other non-profit organizations that are consistent with this mission.  The Foundation does not support grant applications exclusively focused on art of the last three decades.

In particular, the Foundation provides financial support for a number of pre- and post-graduate fellowship programs in American art, for scholarly publications (especially first time publications) in American art, for conservation of important works of American art, and for innovative exhibitions and educational programs centered on American art.
