Lehigh University Art Galleries is among 18 U.S. institutions to receive grant from IMLS, the primary source of federal support for the nation's libraries and museums.

Lehigh University Art Galleries is one of 18 institutions in the United States to receive a prestigious federal grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

The “Museums Empowered” grant will support the museum’s work over the next two years to create and implement a strategic plan; train staff in outcomes-based, visitor-centered practices; and bring guest experts to Lehigh. Staff, who will collaborate with an external consultant, will also meet with colleagues at peer institutions in New York City and Philadelphia and share the art museum’s work at a national conference.
