Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art announced Sept. 5 that they have been awarded a grant from the Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Arts Innovation and Management (AIM) program. The invitation-only program seeks to strengthen the organizational capacity and programming of small and midsize cultural organizations within Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Denver, New Orleans, Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C. Through the $43 million multi-year initiative, Bloomberg Philanthropies will provide unrestricted general operating support as well as arts management training in areas that include fundraising, strategic planning, marketing and board development.
Hugh A. Grant, founding director and curator of Kirkland Museum, states, “Kirkland Museum is immensely grateful to be a recipient of a grant from Bloomberg’s Arts Innovation and Management program. Their support will help us continue to promote Colorado’s distinguished art history by increasing our educational programming and member events, expanding our community outreach and broadening our impact in the Denver arts community.”
AIM targets arts nonprofits because of the vital role that they play in building communities, driving local economies and supporting artists. “The arts inspire people, provide jobs and strengthen communities,” said Michael R. Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg Philanthropies. “This program is aimed at helping some of the country’s most exciting cultural organizations reach new audiences and expand their impact.”
