IMLS grant for $61,000
Museum of Contemporary Craft (MoCC) has been awarded a $61,000 Museums for America Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). The grant supports the development of Generations: Betty Feves, a retrospective exhibition of work by this major Oregon ceramicist. Part of the Museum’s 75th Anniversary celebration, the exhibition highlights the strong history of ceramics at the Museum and in the Northwest and celebrates the crucial role of women in the history of contemporary art. The exhibition opens March 15, 2012 and will travel to the Pendleton Art Center in Pendleton, Oregon. The IMLS grant matches major support for this exhibition from the Whiteman Foundation, The Collins Foundation, Meyer Memorial Trust, and individual donors.
