GRANT OPPORTUNITY: Support for Contemporary Art Exhibition Publications from the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation

Deadline: 03-15-2012


Funding from the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation supports direct costs for catalogues and other publications accompanying contemporary art exhibitions and projects, especially those supporting emerging and under-recognized artists and produced by smaller organizations outside the nation’s cultural centers. Limited funds are also available for publications related to the grantee organization and its programs or collections.


The Foundation does not provide grants for individuals, general operating expenses, capital campaigns, endowment funds, or projects supporting the work of deceased artists, and prefers one-time special projects that are originated by the applying organization. Requests for projects that take place within one year of the request will be given priority consideration. Grant amounts typically range from $5,000 to $20,000. Proposals for funding are reviewed by the Trustees semi-annually, in the Spring and Fall.


Letters of inquiry are required before submission of a full proposal. They are accepted throughout the year for preliminary review by the grants committee but must be received by March 15 for the Spring funding cycle and by August 15 for the Fall funding cycle. Letters of inquiry will not be accepted via fax or email. If the request is recommended for further consideration, the applicant will be invited to submit a full proposal. See application guidelines.
