The Terra Foundation for American Art and the American Academy in Rome are pleased to offer the Terra Foundation Affiliated Fellowship in Rome.
This Fellowship offers support for a postdoctoral and senior scholar to conduct research on American art and visual culture (not including architecture) prior to 1980 while in residence at the American Academy in Rome for a period of 4 to 6 months. During that time, the Fellowship recipient will pursue their work in an atmosphere conducive to intellectual and artistic freedom, interdisciplinary exchange, and innovation.
The Fellowship has the following objectives:
• To stimulate research on topics treating issues of Italian-American exchange;
• To enrich the field of historic American art by bringing its practitioners into dialogue with the scholarly community of the American Academy in Rome;
• To advance post-doctoral research on subjects related to the history of American Art until 1980 by scholars based in Italy; and
• To encourage research on American Art requiring first-hand exposure to collections and archives in the Rome area.

The Terra Foundation for American Art is dedicated to fostering exploration, understanding, and enjoyment of the visual arts of the United States for national and international audiences. Recognizing the importance of experiencing original works of art, the foundation provides opportunities for interaction and study, beginning with the presentation and growth of its own art collection in Chicago. To further cross-cultural dialogue of American art, the foundation supports and collaborates on innovative exhibitions, research, and education programs. Implicit in such activities is the belief that art has the potential both to distinguish cultures and unite them.
