I Was Raised on the Internet

Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago

The Thoma Foundation is pleased to provide lead support for the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago’s I Was Raised on the Internet. Bringing together 100 works from 1998 to the present, including several new commissions, the exhibition offers the first comprehensive look at the effects of the internet on contemporary art and our experience of the world.


The Thoma Foundation has grant-making programs for organizations and for individuals. We review grant proposals from non-profit organizations biannually, in the spring and fall. The Foundation runs four annual programs for individuals: the Arts Writing Award in Digital Art, the Marilynn Thoma Fellowship in Spanish Colonial Art, the Thoma Foundation Research and Travel Awards in Spanish Colonial Art, and the Carl & Marilynn Thoma Art Foundation Research Fellowship in Twentieth-Century Abstract Painting.

Open applications are available online through the Thoma Foundation Applicant Portal.
