The Exhibition will highlight the visual and performing artist
and writer grantees of the Rosenwald Fund. Edith Stern’s
father, Julius Rosenwald, was a renowned philanthropist whose
“give while you live” philosophy helped to create schools, housing
and museums across the country.
One of the most noteworthy parts of The Rosenwald Fund,
1917-1948, were grants given to individuals in the arts
and sciences. Rosenwald was unique for his time in that
recipients were of all races. In the 31 years the
Fund existed it gave out grants to 862 individuals,
190 of which were for arts in such diverse fields
as metalworking, language, and literature and fashion design along
with traditional mediums of painting, sculpture and music.
The exhibition will highlight works from luminaries such as
Conrad Albrizio, Marian Anderson, James Baldwin, Richmond Barthé,
Aaron Douglas, and Jacob Lawrence.
