The BRICE CHARITABLE FOUNDATION’s (BCF) mission is to educate the public about the art and life of William Brice (1921-2008) and about art in general through exhibitions, loans of artwork; publication of educational materials; sponsorship of seminars; and, other activities as may promote these goals.
To support this effort, the BCF website, WilliamBrice.org, provides an extensive gallery of art work images, library of published and unpublished writings, archival photographs, and anecdotal materials illuminating the artist’s life as well the era and environment in which he lived and worked.
Additionally, our Catalogue Raisonné project aims to locate and document all the unique works in the artist’s oeuvre. In so doing, we will build a comprehensive resource for art professionals—scholars, curators, and writers— about William Brice, the man, artist, and professor impacted so many others.
The BRICE CHARITABLE FOUNDATION is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) foundation. We accept and appreciate donations supporting our mission.
