Foundation in the Spotlight
Henry Luce Foundation
Since its founding, the Henry Luce Foundation has awarded more than $600 million in grants, $350 million of which has been given within the past decade. The Foundation fulfills the mission of Henry R. and Clare Luce with a variety of grant-making programs focused on American Art, East Asia, theology, higher education, public policy, and the environment.
The DMA is honored to be a current recipient of funding from the American Art Program. This generous contribution supports the Gustav Stickley and the American Arts & Crafts Movement Exhibition and catalogue. The exhibition and accompanying catalogue highlight the life and work of Gustav Stickley, who is considered to be the patriarch of the American Arts and Crafts movement. Containing more than 100 works ranging from furniture and metalwork to lighting and textiles, this exhibition is the foremost demonstration of Arts and Crafts Movement work. The exhibition catalogue, edited by Kevin Tucker, the DMA’s Margot B. Perot Curator of Decorative Arts and Design, will preserve and sustain Stickley’s crucial role in the Arts and Crafts Movement.
The DMA is proud to honor the legacy of Henry R. Luce and his wife, Clare Boothe Luce. Their dedication to the American Arts and quest for knowledge make it possible for the DMA to engage and educate the North Texas community, to contribute to cultural knowledge, and to advance creative endeavor.
