The Art Acquisition Fund, established in 2004, was created by Rasmuson Foundation and has been managed by Museums Alaska through 2018, along with the Collections Management Fund. Applicants to AAF are required to be 501(c)(3) nonprofit, government, tribal entities or equivalent organizations that hold collections in the public trust, such as a museum or cultural center. Small, rural-based organizations are encouraged to apply. The AAF has not only made possible the enrichment of the state’s museum and cultural center collections, but the funds also have gone directly to Alaska artists encouraging them to continue their work in Alaska.
Institutional membership in Museums Alaska is encouraged but not required. If your institution is not a member, click here to join and help us continue to develop programs that benefit the Alaska museum community and the cultural sector.
