ATLANTA, GA.- The Souls Grown Deep Foundation announced today that four museums have acquired works from its foremost collection of artworks by artists from the African American South: Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia), Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, The Phillips Collection, and the Clark Atlanta University Art Museum, which is the second historically black college or university to receive works from the Foundation.

With the addition of these four museums, the foundation has now placed more than 350 works by over 100 artists in 16 institutions, primarily through a combination of gift/purchase. The collection transfer program is designed to strengthen the presentation of African American artists from the Southern United States in the permanent collections of leading museums across the world.

• Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia) has acquired 33 works from the Souls Grown Deep Foundation that demonstrate the breadth of the Foundation’s collection, which will be presented in an exhibition in late 2020 or early 2021.

• The Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts has acquired five works, which will be shown in an exhibition beginning Saturday, May 11, and will remain on view through the summer of 2019.

• The Phillips Collection makes its first acquisition from the Souls Grown Deep Foundation with five works, planned for installation in Fall 2019.

The acquisitions include works by artists such as Minnie Sue Coleman, Thornton Dial, Arthur Dial Lonnie Holley, Ronald Lockett, Joe Minter, Nellie Mae Rowe, Georgia Speller, Henry Speller, Mose Tolliver, and the quiltmakers of Gee’s Bend: Mary Lee Bendolph, Aolar Mosley, Arlonzia Pettway, Malissia Pettway, Lucy T.
