Bank of America’s support of the arts includes funding more than 20 major museum exhibitions each year. Additionally, the bank supports a wide variety of performing arts organizations, including nonprofits that deliver arts outreach and educational programs. Here are some highlights:
Sargent and Spain
National Tour Sponsor
National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.
October 2, 2022–January 2, 2023
For the first time, Sargent and Spain presents approximately 120 dazzling oils, watercolors and drawings, many of which are rarely exhibited. Also featured from the artist’s travels are some 28 never-before-published photographs, several almost certainly taken by Sargent himself.
The exhibition will travel to the Legion of Honor, San Francisco (February 11–May 14, 2023).
Edward Hopper’s New York
Whitney Museum of American Art, New York City
October 19, 2022–March 5, 2023
This exhibition takes a comprehensive look at Hopper’s life and work through his city pictures, from his early impressions of New York in sketches, prints and illustrations, to his late paintings, in which the city served as a backdrop for his evocative distillations of urban experience.
Alex Katz: Gathering
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York City
October 21, 2022–February 20, 2023
This retrospective fills the museum’s Frank Lloyd Wright rotunda. Encompassing paintings, oil sketches, collages, drawings, prints and freestanding “cutout” works, the exhibition begins with the artist’s intimate sketches of riders on the New York City subway from the late 1940s and culminates in the rapturous, immersive landscapes that have dominated his output in recent years.
Chagall. World in turmoil
Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt
November 4, 2022–February 19, 2023
With more than 100 haunting paintings, works on paper, photos and documents, the exhibition traces the artist’s search for a pictorial language in the face of expulsion and persecution.
International African American Museum
Charleston, South Carolina
Scheduled to open on January 21, 2023
The International African American Museum’s mission is to “honor the untold stories of the African American journey at one of our country’s most sacred sites.” The museum will be housed on the former Gadsden's Wharf in Charleston, the point of disembarkation for nearly half of all enslaved Africans who were brought to the U.S.
Bank of America’s support of the museum totals more than $1 million. The funding will go to development of museum programming, curriculum and operational plans, as well as the recruitment and hiring of the museum’s leadership team who will steward and drive its mission.
