Bloomberg Philanthropies: Asphalt Art InitiativeDeadline: December 12, 2019
Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Asphalt Art Initiative responds to the growing number of cities around the world embracing art as an effective and relatively low-cost strategy to activate their streets. The initiative will provide support to small and medium sized U.S. cities to implement “asphalt art” interventions, defined as visual interventions on roadways (intersections and crosswalks), pedestrian spaces (plazas and sidewalks), and vertical infrastructure (utility boxes, traffic barriers, and underpasses).
Amount: Ten grants of up to $25,000 each will be awarded.
- Cities that have a population between 30,000 and 500,000 may apply
- The lead applicant must be a city government agency (e.g., Department of Transportation, Department of Public Works, etc.)
- A registered 501(c)3 nonprofit must be identified as a fiscal agent to receive grant funds
- The project site(s) must be identified, and must be largely or completely on public property and be fully open to the public
