Harpo Foundation Seeks Applications for New Work Grants
DEADLINE: APRIL 29, 2015 (LETTERS OF INQUIRY)
The Chicago-based Harpo Foundation was established in 2006 to support artists who are underrecognized by the field. The foundation seeks to stimulate creative inquiry to encourage new modes of thinking about art.
To that end, the foundation is inviting Letters of Inquiry for its 2015 New Work Project Grants program. Through the annual program, grants of up to $10,000 are awarded to nonprofit organizations in support of new work by underrecognized artists age 21 or older. The foundation considers proposals that directly support the production of new work by visual artists and/or collaborative teams. This production may happen in the context of an installation, public intervention, residency, or exhibition.
To be eligible, applicants must be considered tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Review Code.
LOIs must be received no later than April 29, 2015. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit full applications.
