Foundation for Art 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 almost 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. All artworks commissioned or placed by FAPE are gifts, representing the generosity and patriotism of some of the United States’ greatest artists and donors. FAPE fulfills its mission through site-specific commissions, original print and photography collections, preservation projects, and other arts initiatives.
