American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius is a major initiative to acquaint Americans with the best of their cultural and artistic legacy. Through American Masterpieces, the National Endowment for the Arts will sponsor performances, exhibitions, tours, and educational programs across all art forms that will reach large and small communities in all 50 states.

This component of American Masterpieces will celebrate the evolution of the visual arts in the United States. Through the creation and touring of major exhibitions, art of the highest quality -- that otherwise would not be available -- will be experienced by Americans in communities across the nation.

Exhibitions may focus on schools, movements, traditions, subject areas, and themes that include but are not limited to the following:

  • The Hudson River School
  • American Impressionism
  • Native American Art
  • American Masterworks from Unique Collections including private collections
  • Aspects of American Art Post-1945 to the Present
  • Art of the W.P.A.
  • Latino Art
  • The Portrait in America
  • American Naïve Art
  • African American Art
  • American Photographers and Photography
  • American Decorative Arts
  • The Art of the American West
  • Industrial Design
  • Architecture
  • Costume and Textiles
  • Folk Arts

Exhibitions must be

  • Scaled to the size and needs of small and mid-sized exhibiting institutions;
  • Accompanied by related educational and interpretive components including brochures and catalogues. Educational material for children and youth must be consistent with national, state, or local arts education standards;
  • Shown for a period of 8-12 weeks at 2-5 venues which may include the organizing institution. The number of venues should be appropriate to the nature of the works on view.
