Foundation / Corporation
Elizabeth Firestone Graham (EFG) Foundation
Grants ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 to USA (excluding New Mexico) organizations for publications that promote appreciation and awareness of the contemporary visual arts. LOIs are due March 1. Funding is primarily provided in support of publications and catalogues that showcase exhibitions by under-recognized or emerging visual artists.
Of particular interest are projects that attempt to bring together artists and the community, support artists from marginalized populations, and provide exposure to contemporary art where it may not otherwise be seen.
Funding from the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation is currently available to support direct costs for catalogues and other publications accompanying contemporary art exhibitions and projects, especially those supporting emerging and under-recognized artists, and produced by organizations outside the nation's cultural centers. Limited funds are also available for publications related to the grantee organization and its programs or collections.
One-time special projects that are originated by the applying organization are preferred.
