Los Angeles : Art Museum Gets $450,000

November 01, 1990

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art has received a matching grant of $450,000 from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to establish a curatorial support program.

In accepting the grant, museum director Earl A. Powell III said: "The scholarly function of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will be greatly enhanced by this generous grant from the Mellon Foundation. It will be a major step for greater scholarly research, publication and preparation of exhibitions by the curatorial staff, especially the promising young and mid-level curators, whose work is often not funded by Federal and corporate support."

The money will be used to increase the museum's number of scholarly exhibitions.
