Grants ranging from $2,000 to $10,000 to Albuquerque Area, New Mexico individual artists and collectives for the presentation and development of artist-led visual arts programs and projects that will be accessible to the public. Funding is intended for a variety of projects, such as a new exhibition or exhibition series, ongoing works of an arts venue or collective, a public art project, a one-time event or performance, publications directly related to the visual arts, an online project, an artist residency, a series of film screenings, and more.
The Fulcrum Fund awards are intended for artists expressly working in the visual arts. Works and projects created with, and involving performance or media are eligible provided visual art is a major portion of the finished project. Prospective artists are encouraged to apply for funding in support of projects that embrace experimentation and utilize innovative, risk-taking approaches that seek to expand conceptions regarding contemporary visual art production in the greater Albuquerque area.
This program serves as an essential support structure to enable artists to expand existing work and pivot in new directions in creating and showcasing projects that inspire curiosity, engagement and dialogue. The Fulcrum Fund is a springboard for artistic processes that are adventurous, experimental and forward thinking, while celebrating projects that do not fit into the traditional museum and gallery systems.
You may apply for general operating expenses for a new or existing art space. Examples of general operating expenses associated with the launch of a new arts space or the support of an existing arts space include: rent, utilities, artist/designer fees, materials, supplies, administrative fees and promotional materials.
