Art Matters currently considers applications by invitation only. Each round we select a national group of recognized artists, curators, and other arts leaders to nominate artists to apply. We award grants of $3,000-$10,000 to U.S. artists for work that is socially engaged with a focus on local, national and/or global concerns. We fund individuals, collectives and collaborative teams working all visual media including experimental performance, and film.
Requests can be made for:
- Travel and research (either within the U.S. or abroad)
- Materials, production and presentation expenses
