The Brant Foundation Lecture Series, established in 2013, offers opportunities for individuals to hear directly from some of the most influential voices in the art world today. The lectures, designed to coincide with The Brant Foundation’s exhibitions, are held in conjunction with art institutions and schools in the surrounding area, expanding the forum for discourse across a variety of platforms and venues. Lectures are open to the public and free of charge.
Established in 1996, The Brant Foundation's extensive loan program plays a crucial role in its mission to promote education and appreciation for contemporary art and design by making works available to the public. Each year, the foundation lends a multitude of artworks to institutions around the world. Additionally, The Brant Foundation's exhibitions have traveled within the United States and internationally to Italy, France, and Canada. Please contact Allison Brant for Loan Inquiries

Teachers / Students
All educational tours at The Brant Foundation are designed to focus on the group's current area of study. Our goal is to create an environment that encourages students to develop visual literacy and critical thinking skills through experiencing art. An art activity and/or group reflection period is offered after each tour in order to provide an opportunity for the students to creatively process the ideas and themes discussed during their tour. Our programs align with The National Core Art Standards and Visual Arts Common Standards for PK-12th grade. The Brant Foundation Art Study Center aims to be a vital educational resource for teachers, students, and schools. Here you will find a selection of study guides and lesson plans for teachers to use in the classroom. This page is currently under construction, please come back soon.
Intern at The Brant Foundation
Interns play a meaningful role in upholding The Brant Foundation's mission to promote education and appreciation of contemporary art. The Brant Foundation's internship program provides hands-on opportunities for students, recent graduates and young professionals looking to gain experience working in the arts. The program is exceptional in that it is designed to help individuals gain valuable experience by building unique opportunities around their area of interest and skill set.
In order to provide a well-rounded experience, all interns are required to lead comprehensive tours of the foundation's current exhibition. This practice has proved to be invaluable for the foundation's interns, offering an opportunity for participants to strengthen their public speaking skills, further their understanding of contemporary art in a unique environment, and enhance their ability to create an exciting and engaging dialogue with visitors.
