$10,000 toward the archival research associated with the exhibition Allan D’Arcangelo: Retrospective and accompanying catalogue, organized by gallery curator Sandra Firmin in partnership with the Burchfield-Penney Art Center. As a painter, activist, and educator, D’Arcangelo communicated socially-minded ideas in his artwork, antiwar protests, and classrooms at the School of Visual Arts and Brooklyn College. He created bold compositions and emblematic depictions of consumer products, highway landscapes, industrial structures and airplanes to explore the uncertainties of a changing society.
