Virginia Museum Curator Receives Getty Research Grant for Work on James McNeil Whistler


Dr. David Park Curry, curator of American arts at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, is one of the first 10 recipients of research grants awarded by the Getty Grant Program. Curry will use the grant to fund three months of work on a monograph titled "James McNeil Whistler: A Visual Synthesis."

Getty Curatorial Research Fellowships totaling more than $100,000 support professional scholarly development by allowing curators time off from their regular duties to take on short-term research or study projects.
