Forecast Public Art
Grants of $5,000 to Minnesota artists for career advancement in the area of public art. Funding is intended to support the development of a project concept or to participate in activities that will help mid-career artists further their careers as public artists. Professional development activities can range from residencies to apprenticeships, conferences, travel, study, skill development, and the creation of project models or prototypes, as long as the overall outcome is to advance the applicant’s public art career.
Broadly speaking, 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.
Mid-career artists are recognized by their peers and arts professionals, have produced an independent body of work and have a record of commissions, projects, or exhibitions.
Forecast seeks to fund a diverse group of artists working in a range of public art practices and media. They place particular emphasis 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.
