RISD Museum gets $1 million grant

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded a $1 million grant to the RISD Museum of Art in Providence to create an endowment to support a three-year postdoctoral curatorial fellowship in the Department of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs, the museum announced last week. The grant aims to increase academic use of the 26,000-works collection, housed in the Minskoff Center at the RISD Museum’s new Chace Center, by faculty and students at Brown and RISD.
