Established in 2005, the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage houses seven funding programs of The Pew Charitable Trusts. Since the inception of its very first program, Philadelphia Music Project in 1989, the Center has awarded a total amount of over $82 million to artists and arts organizations in the area. In addition, the Center has granted over $1.5 million in professional development funds to its growing list of constituents.
The Center’s grantee projects have included world premieres and commissions, exhibitions that travel from area museums and galleries to international arts organizations, imaginative and experimental public history programming, and interdisciplinary collaborations. The Center’s impressive list of Pew Fellows includes recipients of Guggenheim, MacArthur, and United States Artists Fellowships.
