American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius is a major initiative to acquaint Americans with the best of their cultural and artistic legacy. Through American Masterpieces, the National Endowment for the Arts will sponsor performances, exhibitions, tours, and educational programs across all art forms that will reach large and small communities in all 50 states.

This component of American Masterpieces will celebrate the extraordinary and rich contribution that presenting organizations make in American communities. Through American Masterpieces: Presenting, presentations of the performing, visual, media, design, and literary arts of the highest quality will be experienced by Americans in communities across the nation.

Presenting organizations of all sizes, genres, and aesthetics are encouraged to apply. Projects may be initiated by:

  • Networks of presenters
  • College or university presenters
  • Local, regional, or national presenters
  • National service organizations and their networks.

The system must receive your application no later than 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on September 24, 2009.
