Foundation for Art and Preservation in Embassies

The Foundation for Art and Preservation in Embassies (FAPE) is a public-private partnership dedicated to providing permanent works of American art for U.S. embassies worldwide. For over thirty years, FAPE has contributed to the U.S. Department of State’s mission of cultural diplomacy by partnering with American artists whose works encourage cross-cultural understanding within the diplomatic community and the international public. FAPE fulfills its mission through Site-Specific commissions, Original Print and Photography Collections, preservation projects, and other arts and education initiatives. All artworks commissioned or placed by FAPE are by American artists and are gifts, representing the generosity and patriotism of some of the United States’ greatest artists and donors.

FAPE was founded by Leonore Annenberg, Wendy W. Luers, Lee Kimche McGrath and Carol Price. As spouses of former U.S. ambassadors, and with Mrs. McGrath as the Director of Art in Embassies at the State Department, FAPE’s founders recognized a need to build upon the Department’s efforts by providing permanent works of American art that would endure the tests of time in embassies across the world. Since FAPE was established in 1986, more than $170 million in art and monetary contributions has been raised and works have been placed in more than 140 countries.
