Grants of up to $10,000 to Greater Baltimore, Maryland individual artists to support projects in the literary, media, performing, or visual arts. All projects must include a public component. Funding may be requested for projects that are in progress, projects that have not yet begun, and distinct phases of long-term projects. Preference is given to projects that have significant creative work left to be done.
The Rubys were established in 2013 to provide project-based support for individual artists. The goal of the program is to provide meaningful support to individual artists to allow for the creation of new work. The Rubys supports the notion of risk-taking (in practice, content, process, and/or outcome) and equally values artistic integrity, strong ideas, feasibility, and communal meaning. The program is open to artists at any stage of their career and favors projects that have significant creative work left to accomplish.
Grants will enable individual artists to create or complete a project that will include a public component occurring at some point during the grant period. The public component may be a performance, presentation/lecture, screening, exhibition, reading, or any other type of event that fits with the nature of the project.
For 2019, the Rubys program schedule was reorganized and this year all artistic categories are represented in the grant cycle – Literary Arts, Media Arts, Performing Arts, and Visual Arts.
