Art is one of the best ways to understand the rich history of the United States because it offers an intimate insight into the people and principles that have shaped the nation.
Established in 2002, the Center for American Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art encourages and facilitates the study of the nation’s artistic heritage from its beginnings to the present day. In partnership with universities, museums, and libraries in the greater Philadelphia area, the museum supports public programs, publications, and exhibitions, as well as offers project grants, fellowships, and research resources intended to enhance the dialogue on American art with a special emphasis on the local region.

The Center for American Art sponsors one full-year graduate fellowship and two graduate fellowships each summer that enable students to develop curatorial experience while contributing to the Department of American Art’s collection research and exhibition preparation.
