More Than $82 Million Awarded for Arts Projects Nationwide by National Endowment for the Arts

Includes $15,000 awarded to Boston Public Library/East Boston Branch


(BOSTON, May 10 ,2016) - National Endowment for the Arts Jane Chu has approved more than $82 million to fund local arts projects and partnerships in the NEA’s second major funding announcement for fiscal year 2016. Included in this announcement is an Art Works award of $15,000 to the Boston Public Library/East Boston Branch “To support continued restoration efforts for the painting series Ships Through the Ages by Frederick Leonard King. The series is significant to the East Boston, Massachusetts community's maritime heritage and is a product of the Federal Art Project.”



The Art Works category supports the creation of work and presentation of both new and existing work, lifelong learning in the arts, and public engagement with the arts through 13 arts disciplines or fields. “The arts are all around us, enhancing our lives in ways both subtle and obvious, expected and unexpected,” said NEA Chairman Jane Chu. “Supporting projects like the one from the East Boston branch library offers more opportunities to engage in the arts every day.”

Susan Brauner, chair of the branch library’s Art Restoration Committee, noted that “I am glad that the people of East Boston will have an opportunity to have another of our maritime cultural heritage paintings restored and displayed.”

The grant will allow the first painting in the Frederick Leonard King 1937 series Ships Through The Ages, The Viking Ship, to be restored. The painting, which was found in a locked room in the basement on the day of the branch’s move from Meridian Street, is blackened with age. According to the art restoration firm Oliver Brothers, however, the picture can be restored to its original condition.
