The John F. Kennedy Institute for North American Studies and the Terra Foundation for American Art currently enjoy a very successful partnership in administering the Terra Foundation Visiting Professor of American Art program at the Kennedy Institute’s Department of Culture, in cooperation with the Art History Institutes of Freie Universität Berlin and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The program functions as a pillar not only of the Kennedy Institute’s curriculum, powerfully enabling the JFKI to include the study of art history in its B.A. and M.A. degree programs, but has simultaneously provided the Terra Foundation for American Art with a flourishing international program that facilitates cross-cultural and trans-disciplinary scholarly engagement with American art history and indeed fosters the “exploration, understanding, and enjoyment of the visual arts of the United States” (terraamericanart.org, Mission Statement).
