Individual Artist grants support the creation of new work by an individual artist in a community setting. The goal of this grant is to support the creative work of individual artists in all disciplines while encouraging interaction between artists and community members. Projects may include exhibitions, site-specific works, installations, performances, or any other events or activities that are accessible to the general public.
Grants ranging from $1,000 to $2,500 are available to individual artists. More detailed information on eligibility and qualifications is found in the grant guidelines.
The application deadline is 11:59pm on Friday, October 30, 2020. Applications are submitted online.
