Grants of $5,000 to Maine visual artists for innovative and bold art projects. Consideration will be given to projects that will be displayed both in and outside standard exhibition venues. Funding is intended for site-specific installations, interventions, publications, web or media-based work, and curatorial projects.

Successful projects value unconventional approaches to art making, critical dialogue, collaboration and new models of community interface. Applications may address a distinct chapter, aspect or component of a larger project.

Community engagement and collaboration in and outside the arts is encouraged.

The vision of the Ellis-Beauregard Foundation is to encourage, expand and sustain the courageous and imaginative dialogue that is fundamental to the arts. The Ellis-Beauregard Foundation celebrates the value of art to transcend cultures and engage with diverse communities. Through its programs, the Ellis-Beauregard Foundation supports the exploration of the common ground that art occupies, the way it engages people, and its ability to reveal our shared human experience.
