Creative Capital/Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program to Fund Work on Contemporary Visual Art
Deadline: September 22, 2008
The Creative Capital/Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant is an initiative of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts ( http://www.warholfoundation.org ) as part of its broader Arts Writing Initiative ( http://artswriters.org/initiative.php ) and is administered by Creative Capital ( http://creativecapital.org ).
Dedicated to supporting a wide range of writing on contemporary visual art -- from general-audience to scholarly -- the program awards project-based grants to individual authors. In its 2008 cycle, the program will fund approximately 20 projects, in amounts ranging from $3,000 to $50,000 each, in the following categories: books; articles; short-form writing; and blogs/new and alternative media.
To be eligible, an arts writer must be: an individual; an art historian, artist, critic, curator, journalist, or practitioner in an outside field who is strongly engaged with the contem- porary visual arts; a U.S. citizen, permanent resident of the United States, or possessor of an O-1 visa; at least 25 years old; and a published author (specific publication requirements vary depending on grant category).
Please note: Writers wishing to apply for book projects must first submit a Letter of Inquiry. The 2008 deadline for the Book LOI has already passed. Applicants who advanced to panel in previous years are eligible to apply without submitting an LOI. The program is no longer accepting applications for article series, only for individual articles.
