The IU Art Museum is one of five nationwide recipients of a chairman's "sizable" grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for Picturing America, IU Art Museum curator Edward Maxedon said.

Picturing America is a new initiative by the NEH to bring American art into classrooms to facilitate understanding of art and American history, according to an IU press release.

Maxedon wrote a proposal for IU to receive the grant. He said the museum strives to teach different disciplines, including history, through art to elementary school students in area counties.
