Bradley Art Department Receives Prestigious Grant

August 3, 2017

Bradley University Department of Art has received a grant from the prestigious Terra Foundation for American Art.  The grant is a part of the Foundation's desire to explore vibrant creative history and enduring influence on art and design. 
The $6100 grant will be used to support the upcoming bi-annual Midwest Women Art Symposium that will take place November 2 and 3 on campus. Organized with the Illinois Women Artists Project (IWA), the focus this year is on women artists from the 1960's through the 1980's who have had an impact on Midwestern culture and society.  
IWA Director, Kristan McKinsey, says "This grant allows us to bring in higher profile artists and scholars to the symposium as we rediscover forgotten women artists and recognize their achievements."
