Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual ArtsDeadline: September 1, 2015
The primary focus of the Andy Warhol Foundation’s grantmaking has been to support the creation, presentation, and documentation of contemporary visual art, particularly work that is experimental, under-recognized, or challenging in nature. 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 work of choreographers and performing artists occasionally is funded when the visual arts are an inherent element of a production.
Amount: Grant awards range from $10,000 to $150,000. Most grants fall between $75,000 to $100,000.
Eligibility: Grants are awarded to tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations. Giving is on a national basis.
