The Pew Charitable Trusts is driven by the power of knowledge to solve today's most challenging problems. Pew applies a rigorous, analytical approach to improve public policy, inform the public and stimulate civic life.
Through exhibitions and related publications, the Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative stimulates artistic development and excellence in the region’s visual arts community. It is a program of the Pew Center for Arts and Heritage and is administered by the University of the Arts.
Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative grants are awarded annually on a competitive basis and selected by a panel of internationally recognized visual arts professionals. The program provides both planning and implementation grants, as well as professional development opportunities through curatorial roundtables and symposia that address important issues in the field, travel grants for curatorial research and development, and access to its research library of over 1,500 volumes. The initiative also publishes critical writing on curatorial practice.
Some examples of Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative-funded projects include the Asian Arts Initiative’s commissioning of Asian American artists to create site-specific installations in locations in Philadelphia’s Chinatown, as well as a planning grant to the Institute of Contemporary Art for a show that explores the imagery and symbolism of puppets.
