Fenimore Wins

$2.5M To Fund

Thaw Curator

Another $1M To Buy Significant Art

The first acquisition of American art through the Thaw Foundation grant will be “Elk Swimming The Platte” by Alfred Jacob Miller.
Eva Fognell will be first Thaw curator.

COOPERSTOWN – The Fenimore Art Museum today announced a $2.5 million gift from the Eugene V. and Clare E. Thaw Charitable Trust.  The gift will fund a “principal curator” for the Thaw Collection of Native American Art, and create a new fund for special projects related to the collection.

The new position has been named the Eugene and Clare Thaw curator of American Indian Art, and present curator Eva Fognell, who has managed the collection since 2002, assumes the title immediately. The curatorship is the first endowed position in the museum’s history.

An additional gift of $1 million will support the Fenimore’s art acquisition fund beginning in 2019. The gift also included several notable artworks, including the painting “Elk Swimming The Platte” by American artist Alfred Jacob Miller.
