Hessel Museum of Art, CCS Bard.
The Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College (CCS Bard) has been awarded a $50,000 Frankenthaler Climate Initiative Grant to advance its energy efficiency and clean energy projects. Launched by the Helen Frankenthaler Foundation in partnership with RMI and Environment and Culture Partners, the Frankenthaler Climate Initiative is the first grant-making program of its kind in the U.S. to address climate change with a $10 million commitment to climate action in the visual arts through funding energy efficiency and clean energy generation in visual arts museums, schools, and cultural institutions. CCS Bard is a recipient of a 2022 technical assistance grant, which supports the specification and budgeting of an identified efficiency project to allow for procurement and financing. In the face of global climate change, more frequent and extreme weather events, and uncertain energy market forecasts, CCS Bard strives for a low-carbon, high-efficiency, and high-resiliency future.
