ASSOCIATION OF ART MUSEUM CURATORS RECEIVES FUNDING FROM THE SAMUEL H. KRESS FOUNDATION FOR 2013 TRAVEL GRANTS

New York, February 7, 2013 – The Association of Art Museum Curators (AAMC) is pleased to announce the receipt of a $10,000 grant from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation to fund this year’s AAMC Professional Development Travel Grants. The Samuel H. Kress Foundation has continued to be one of the largest funders of the AAMC’s travel grants over the past six years, beginning in 2008.

AAMC Professional Development Travel Grants aim to support curators within the organization who have limited availability to funds for travel from their own institutions. All current AAMC members are eligible for funding; requests are vetted and approved by the AAMC Board of Trustees. The grants has historically been used to finance travel to the AAMC’s annual meeting. "The AAMC is truly grateful to the Samuel H. Kress Foundation for their ongoing support of this program,” says AAMC President, Carol S. Eliel. "The Professional Development Travel Grants have been an essential component of our organization, allowing curators to meet and network with their peers, thereby offering invaluable opportunities for professional development. The AAMC would not be able to sustain this program without the strong support of the Kress Foundation.”
