With support from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Charlotte Street Foundation and the Spencer Museum of Art are partnering to fuel the dynamism of our region’s art ecology by providing direct support for innovative, experimental, artist-driven, and artist-centered projects through new Rocket Grants.  These Rocket Grants will will provide cash awards of up to $4,000 each to individuals or groups of area artists, curators, and writers, to support the creation and presentation of new work/projects.  

Rocket Grants will enable individuals and groups of artists to take new risks with their work, push the scope and scale of their activities, develop and pursue collaborative projects, and engage with the public and public realm in inventive and meaningful ways. In doing so, these Rocket Grants seek to create ripple effects that will engage, inspire, and propel other artists; spark new ideas and ways of working; and contribute to a regional culture characterized by unconventional and expansive forms of interaction, exchange, provocation, and surprise. 

Applications will be posted by January, 2010, and a series of outreach/information sessions planned. Applications for the first year of grants will be due in Spring 2010.  Read more about the program here.  No phone calls please.
