Amid a national conversation on race and identity, and an upcoming presidential election, the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens on Tuesday announced a schedule of upcoming exhibitions looking at what it means to be American.

The broad theme, which organizers said will also illuminate how national and international influences have shaped American culture, is to be embodied in six exhibitions in San Marino through early 2017.

Artists Jeff Koons and Cindy Sherman have donated to the Foundation for Art and Preservation in Embassies’s Original Print and Photography Collections, respectively.

The FAPE’s collections are displayed in U.S. embassies all over the world, and aim to promote the creativity and diversity of American culture. The tradition of artists donating artworks to the FAPE’s Original Print and Photography Collections began in 1989, when Frank Stella donated an edition of "The Symphony" to every American embassy, and every year, an American artist has donated a new edition of original prints.
