University Art Galleries Receive Grant to Preserve Native American Art Collections
The grant will fund a two-year project to conserve, catalog and digitize the Oscar Howe and Robert L. Penn Northern Plains Contemporary Indian Art Collections. The University Art Galleries’ permanent art collection includes the largest single collection of works by Oscar Howe, the internationally noted Native American artist and former USD faculty member.
“We are very grateful to the Henry Luce Foundation for their support of this project,” Director of the University Art Galleries, Kate Skelly, said. “This project will greatly increase the University Art Galleries’ capacity to share our collections with the public, partnering institutions, artists and scholars of Native American art.”
ABOUT THE HENRY LUCE FOUNDATION
The Henry Luce Foundation was established in 1936 by Henry R. Luce, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of Time Inc., to honor his parents who were missionary educators in China. The Foundation builds upon the vision and values of four generations of the Luce family: broadening knowledge and encouraging the highest standards of service and leadership. The Henry Luce Foundation seeks to bring important ideas to the center of American life, strengthen international understanding, and foster innovation and leadership in academic, policy, religious and art communities.
