The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts’ Grant Program in the U.S.
Deadline: 1 September 2019
The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts has announced its grant program which is focused on serving the needs of artists by funding the institutions that support them.
Grants are made for scholarly exhibitions at museums; curatorial research; visual arts programming at artist-centered organizations; artist residencies and commissions; arts writing; and efforts to promote the health, welfare and first amendment rights of artists.
Grants are made on a project basis to curatorial programs at museums, artists’ organizations, and other cultural institutions to originate innovative and scholarly presentations of contemporary visual arts. Projects may include exhibitions, catalogues, and other organizational activities directly related to these areas. The program also supports the creation of new work through regranting initiatives and artist-in-residence programs. The foundation values the contributions of all artists, reflecting the true diversity of the contemporary art field, and encourages proposals that highlight women, artists of color, and under-represented practitioners.
The foundation believes that freedom of expression is a core principle of an open and enlightened democracy. It welcomes proposals from artist-centered organizations that share this belief, reject bigotry of any sort, and promote inclusive dialogue regarding social, political, cultural and economic issues affecting not only artists but all people.
Non-profit arts organizations throughout the United States are eligible to receive grants from the Foundation.
