Announcing: Illuminating Decades of Women Artists Project
The Long Beach Museum of Art was awarded a 2019 Museums for America Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) in the amount of $194,766 (Federal Award Number: MA-30-19-0515-19). Funding through the agency’s largest competitive federal grant program will enable the Museum to create and maintain digital assets focusing on the institution’s permanent collection of 271 women artists in all media, including wood, enamel, painting, sculpture, photography, and artist books. Over a three-year period, the project will result in free, online access to over 500 digital images and artist biographies via the Museum’s searchable online collections database. The project will provide public access to nearly 70 years of artistic output by California women from 1950 to present, thereby increasing its visibility and appreciation.
