Souls Grown Deep
Client since: 2014
Souls Grown Deep Foundation formed the largest and foremost collection of works by African American artists from the southern United States, encompassing some 1,300 works by more than 160 artists. The Foundation advances its mission by advocating the contributions of these artists in the canon of American art history through scholarship, exhibitions, education, public programs, and publications. In 2014, Souls Grown Deep embarked on a multiyear program to transfer the majority of works in its care to the permanent collections of leading art museums in the United States and abroad, placing nearly 500 works by 114 artists (81 of whom are women) in more than 25 institutions.
