FIAE Mission Statement

The Foundation for International Arts & Education develops world-class traveling exhibitions designed to share the historical and cultural legacies of the countries of the former Soviet Union with American partner museums while introducing American cultural traditions to audiences in Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, Russia and Central Asia.

The Foundation focuses its work on the development and exchange of distinctive exhibitions of visual arts from antiquity to the 21st century, while offering professional training to visiting curators.  To foster long-term working relationships, the Foundation encourages lending and hosting museums to participate in the creative process of exhibition development, accompanying catalogues and mentoring opportunities.  

We believe that promoting such interchanges, independent of international political climates, enriches the wider understanding between our peoples and thereby strengthens the ground for future joint ventures. The Foundation is committed to building upon the dreams of its founder, Gregory Guroff, and sustaining his vision on a sound basis for years to come.

Established in 1995, the Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization located in Bethesda, Maryland, and is an AAM Affiliated Organization.
