Forecast Public Art
Grants of $2,500 to Minnesota emerging artists to help support research, development, and planning related to public art. Funding is intended for activities such as community discussions, budget or site development, or model building connected with freely accessible public art installation or activity. Grants may be used for the development of proposals for other public or nonprofit agencies.
Forecast seeks to fund a diverse group of artists working in a range of public art practices and media. Particular emphasis is placed on supporting and amplifying the artistic work of artists of color, female artists, LGBTQ artists, immigrant artists, artists from rural communities, as well as non-traditional public artists.
Public art is artwork in the public realm, regardless of whether it is situated on public or private property, or whether it is supported through public or private funding. It can range from temporary to permanent work, murals to 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
An early-career artist is considered as, “showing significant potential, yet…under recognized by their peers and arts professionals. Evidence of some professional achievement is expected but artists with an extensive record of accomplishment are not eligible.”
