Hartford’s Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art is partnering with three Southern art museums to form the American South Consortium as part of a national effort to expand the public’s access to American art.
Thanks to a $2 million grant from the Art Bridges Foundation, the Wadsworth, along with curators from South Carolina’s Columbia Museum of Art, and Alabama’s Mobile Museum of Art and Montgomery Museum of Fine Art, will spend the next three years collaborating on a series of traveling exhibits of American art, using works from each museum’s respective collections.
