What a summer it has been. Shortly after receiving our first Warhol Foundation grant in twenty years, Bloomberg Philanthropies awarded us a grant as well. It couldn't have come at a better time. After a period of intensive research and self-reflection, in June WPA adopted new mission and vision statements, committing to an artist-driven process that values experimentation, collaboration, and inclusion. The two-year Bloomberg Philanthropies award is for capacity-building, WPA board and staff will receive training in fundraising, marketing, strategic planning, and board development, with the specific goal of advancing our mission.
