To support the 2013–14 exhibition Home Front: Daily Life in the Civil War North, co-organized by the Terra Foundation and the Newberry Library. The exhibition focuses on the Northern home front, juxtaposing paintings from the Terra Foundation’s collection with complementary material drawn from the Newberry Library’s holdings, including popular prints, photographs, maps, letters, diaries, advertisements, and other ephemera. The grant also supports the accompanying illustrated catalog, a one-day scholarly symposium, public lectures, teacher programs, and gallery talks that expand upon the exhibition’s themes.
