Fall 2022 Ruth Foundation for the Arts Grantee

Today, the Ruth Foundation for the Arts announced the 140 arts organizations who received one of their Fall 2022 grants inspired by how artists live, make, and are remembered. The Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design is honored to be recognized among the recipients.

Supported by the late Ruth DeYoung Kohler II, Ruth Arts provides funding to nonprofit arts organizations nationwide. According to the press release, the newly founded Ruth Arts introduced two new grants, as well as the Ruth DeYoung Kohler Legacy Fund this year, which honors and continues Ruth DeYoung Kohler’s steadfast support of regional and craft-based organizations and artist-built environments. The Fund will provide $2.5 million annually across 40 organizations historically supported by Ruth DeYoung Kohler II.

MIAD is one of two recipients of the Ruth DeYoung Kohler Education award within the Legacy Fund. “We’re proud to honor Ruth’s lifelong commitment to the arts by continuing to fund the organizations she personally supported, and to develop new programs in her spirit of experimentation and community-building,” says Karen Patterson, Executive Director of Ruth Arts.
