Foundation for Art and Preservation in Embassies

JUNE 23, 2016 – AUGUST 7, 2016

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum is proud to partner with the Foundation for Art and Preservation in Embassies (FAPE) for an exhibition of its original print, photography and site-specific collections. The exhibit is curated by Robert Storr, Chairman of FAPE’s Professional Fine Arts Committee and Dean of the Yale School of Art.

Founded thirty years ago during the administration of President and Mrs. Reagan, the Foundation for Art and Preservation in Embassies is the public-private partnership dedicated to providing permanent works of American art for U.S. embassies worldwide.

President Reagan’s Secretary of State, George Shultz, played a vital role in defining FAPE’s mission, which contributes to the U.S. Department of State’s cultural diplomacy efforts by partnering with American artists whose donations encourage cross-cultural understanding within the diplomatic community and the international public. Since 1986, more than $85 million has been raised in art and monetary contributions.

Works by some of this country’s most extraordinary artists will be on display, including: John Baldessari, Tina Barney, Chuck Close, Sidney Felsen, Jasper Johns, Alex Katz, Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein, Brice Marden, Julie Mehretu, Elizabeth Murray, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Susan Rothenberg, Ed Ruscha, Joel Shapiro, Carrie Mae Weems, William Wegman, among others. All artworks commissioned or placed by FAPE are gifts, representing the generosity and patriotism of some of the country’s greatest artists and donors.
