CCS Bard’s M.A. curatorial studies program is unique, nurturing future generations of curators with a course that is rigorous, challenging, and foundational for many of the best young scholars in the field. At CCS Bard, we provide unmatched facilities, an extensive collection, one of the United States’ finest contemporary art libraries, an archive, galleries, and a faculty that is unparalleled among similar programs. The single greatest obstacle to an education is financial. Please consider making a donation towards scholarship support to assist our students in pursuing higher education.

Each year, the Center for Curatorial Studies celebrates the achievements of a leading curator whose lasting contributions have shaped the way we conceive of exhibition-making today. The awardee is selected by an independent panel of leading contemporary art curators, museum directors, and artists. The award reflects CCS Bard’s commitment to recognizing individuals who have defined new thinking, bold vision, and dedicated practice to the field of exhibition practice.

In 2014, the Center introduced the CCS Bard Arts Council. The Arts Council is a membership-only group created to give our supporters exclusive access to the art, artists, curators, patrons, and institutions that shape the international contemporary art landscape today.

The Center for Curatorial Studies is an innovative institution that combines a rigorous academic program in curatorial studies with a vibrant public exhibition program dedicated to contemporary art. Located at Bard College in New York’s Hudson River Valley, the Center for Curatorial Studies and the Hessel Museum of Art provide students and the public with one of New York’s most unique venues to explore the art issues relevant to our time.
Philanthropic support is absolutely essential to ensure the success of both our academic and public programs, and donations from individuals like you make a tremendous difference in our ability to succeed. Giving opportunities range from supporting student scholarships and faculty positions to providing free access to our permanent collection for all visitors and developing exhibitions and other programs related to contemporary art and culture.
Even the smallest gift makes a difference. If you would like to discuss how you can support CCS Bard, please contact Tracy Pollock, Director of Administration and Development, at 845.758.7879 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
