Grants will range from $15,000 to $45,000.
Grants will be awarded in September 2020. If a project already has begun by that time, the artist and the nonprofit organization should still be actively involved in the new work’s creation and collaborating with one after after the grant awards are made.
Projects are expected to be completed within two or three years, but those of longer duration will be considered.
