Early-Career Artist Project Grants support the creation of temporary or permanent public artwork anywhere in the state of Minnesota by an early-career, Minnesota-based artist.
Forecast seeks to fund a diverse group of artists working in all career stages and a range of public art practices and media. They place particular emphasis on supporting and amplifying the artistic work of BIPOC and Native artists, LGBTQIA+ artists, womxn artists, immigrant artists, artists from rural communities, and artists with disabilities.
Public artwork can range from temporary to permanent work and can include murals, sculptures, interventions, performances, storytelling, iron pours, sound and light projects, dance, and spoken word. It is free and accessible to all members of a community.
