Museum Purchase Program

CWA is pleased to announce the establishment of the Museum Grant Purchase Program, a new and exciting way to assist museums in acquiring modern/contemporary wood art for their permanent collections.

In 2017, $15,000 will be available to museums to cover up to one half of the purchase price of a piece of modern/contemporary wood art.

Application deadlines are April 1 and December 1.

To apply, museums must send a proposal that includes institution information, details of the piece that the museum would like to add, as well as why and how the piece will add to the museum's collection. Please see application form (link listed below) for specific proposal requirements.

CWA checks will be issued upon confirmation that full funding has been secured.

The credit line for works acquired through this grant program should acknowledge the support of Collectors of Wood Art.

Completed applications can either be scanned and emailed to:
or they can be downloaded and sent to:
Collectors of Wood Art
107 Guilford Drive
Summerville, South Carolina 29483

CWA is an independent non-profit 501c3 organization, which has no commercial affiliation with any artists or galleries.
