Established in 2019, the Modern Ancient Brown Foundation supports and nurtures BIPOC artists and writers through the creation of a new Core Program housed in Detroit. Drawing upon the personal experience and journey as an artist of its founder, McArthur Binion, the Foundation is committed to build an organization and foster a culture that supports the work of black and indigenous / artists of color leading to the empowerment of these artists to tell their own stories and share their gifts. The Foundation’s Core Program will consist of a Visiting Fellowship, a Post-Baccalaureate Artist Residency, and a collection of international BIPOC art with a resident Curator.
2023 sees the launch of the Foundation’s Core Program consisting of the Modern Ancient Brown Visiting Fellowship and the Post-Baccalaureate Residency in Studio Art and Critical Studies. Each year four Visiting Fellows and two Post-Baccalaureate Residencies in Studio Art (all disciplines) will be chosen.
