William Underwood Eiland (Project Director: May 2006 to November 2011)
Georgia Museum of Art Study Centers in the Humanities

Construction and furnishings for Study Centers in the Humanities, an expanded facility for the museum's fine arts library and three research centers.

The University of Georgia, on behalf of the Georgia Museum of Art, seeks a Challenge Grant of $750,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities, to be matched with $2,250,000 in private contributions. The Challenge Grant will fund the creation of the Georgia Museum of Art Study Centers in the Humanities. The Centers are a major component of Phase II, a $20 million addition to the museum's current building, and a key factor in the museum's realization of its ambitious goals in the humanities. The core of the Study Centers in the Humanities is an expanded facility for the museum's fine-arts library and three research centers; the study centers also include a classroom and small conference room and a designated Centers Gallery for the display of exhibitions and works of art related to the activities of the research centers, with an adjoining reading area. The Study Centers will amplify the museum's capacity to attract and serve students, faculty, and researchers.
