mission

Curatorial Assistance Traveling Exhibitions is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating opportunity for access, outreach and education in the visual arts. CATE fosters collaborations between public and private resources by developing traveling exhibitions that enable audiences everywhere to experience significant works of art.

CATE’s purpose is to provide museums, libraries, and other cultural venues worldwide with affordable, high-quality exhibitions in the arts and humanities that educate, engage and inspire adults and families. By fostering public/private collaborations and gaining access into rare collections, CATE creates and circulates traveling exhibitions that allow people of all ages to view and experience significant works of art and culture that are otherwise unavailable. CATE’s exhibitions are developed and offered with these goals in mind: to encourage creativity, inspire innovation, and promote the visual arts; to educate, inform, inspire, challenge, and delight audiences of all ages; to showcase both recognized and under-represented artists and collections; and to deepen visitors’ understanding of the works presented in the exhibitions.

support

Only a portion of CATE’s budget is met through the participation fees paid by renting venues. Operating income and exhibitions are supported in part through contributions and grants from individuals, foundations, and corporations, including:
