Skidmore College is receiving more than $1 million to “explore diversity through art,” and is planning new courses to complement art exhibits from “diverse or traditionally underrepresented artists.”

According to Saratoga.com, Skidmore has received two separate grants totaling $1.2 million over three years: $860,000 from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and $360,000 from the Ellsworth Kelly Foundation, both of which are earmarked for an initiative aimed at improving and exploring diversity on campus.
