The General Motors Foundation has donated $50,000 to the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) to help bring new art education programs to middle and high school students of the Detroit area.
The Foundation has a long running history of supporting art programs in Detroit and across the United States. Over the last three years, The GM Foundation has donated $23.2 million to Detroit based non-profit programs.
“Through its diverse community outreach and education programs, MOCAD is inspiring artistic minds and the next generation of innovators,” said GM Foundation President Vivian Pickard. “It’s exciting to see all that the museum has accomplished in the past seven years and we look forward to helping the institution expand its education portfolio.”
Seven new programs at MOCAD are set to begin at the end of November, including lectures and gallery tours for students as well as an open studio where high school students may showcase their artwork.
