The Elaine Dannheisser Projects Series was established at The Museum of Modern Art in 1971 to present work by emerging artists and to bring contemporary art to MoMA. Today, the series continues to support the aspirations of artists early in their careers and give curatorial staff the opportunity to organize focused exhibitions of art new to the Museum. The series was renamed the Elaine Dannheisser Projects Series in 2006 in honor of Ms. Dannheisser, a longtime collector of contemporary art who bequeathed much of her collection to MoMA upon her death in 2001. Experimental and expansive, the Elaine Dannheisser Projects Series continues to challenge and broaden ideas about art and artistic practice.
